Fall, it’s a time of harvest, thanks and sharing the abundance nature has provided. We feel fortunate to live so close to nature. We are thankful for the forest’s bounty, a gift that comes with an understanding of and appreciation for its cycles and the stewardship required to keep our natural world healthy.
The fall harvest is dependent on many factors throughout the year—ample rainfall, no late spring frosts, heat waves, and forest pests and pathogens to name a few. This year proved to be the year of frequent rains. It helped provide excess amounts of forage from mushrooms, teaberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.
At Thanksgiving with love, hope and a desire to conserve nature’s great gifts.
