No one size fits all....

Posted 12/5/2017 6:42am by Sally Voris .


Butternut squash, sugar pie pumpkins,sweet potatoes, turnips, Daikon radish and small potatoes--these vegetables still fill my root cellar. I am glad to share them with others and hope and trust that others will share their money with me. I will be coming to Baltimore and to Ellicott City this Sunday, December 10 (weather permitting.)  No one size seems to fit all, so I will bring an assortment. If you know what you want, order ahead and I will pack it for you. 

Two friends helped me open bags of leaves last Saturday. Marie then dug fresh carrots. She discovered my favorite aspect of the carrot: the smell when it is freshly dug. Its fragrance is lively and enlivening. Marie met the essence of Carrot this weekend. It was unforgettable! 

A Celebration: Friends suggested that we hold events to honor the ending of the chapter with me as primary farmer at White Rose Farm. We have planned such an event for Saturday, December 16 at 2:30 p.m., immediately following a membership meeting of the White Rose Farm Circle at 4234 Ruggles Road, Taneytown. We will hold a second celebration on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Share stories and images of your favorite memories of me at the farm as I prepare to welcome a new farmer or farmers to the farm by spring, 2018. 

LONG-RANGE PLANNING: The Board of White Rose Farm Circle has just renewed its commitment to a  vision of developing a model of community that empowers people to work together to restore health to the land, the natural world and each other. The Circle will begin to plan for the 2018 season in January. Interested in being involved? Let me know! 

In the meantime, our events continue: 

A TIME TO BE: A Woman's Retreat:  Our next retreat will be Saturday, December 16 from 10:30 to 1:30 p.m. We gather as the seasons change to honor the rhythms of nature and the rhythms of our lives. Cost? $25 or $15 for first-timers. Click here to register. 

GLOBAL SISTERHOOD GATHERING: Our next gathering will be on Monday, December 18 from 7 to 9:00 p.m. at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road. Renee Deiaco will lead the program and include Radiant Lotus Qigong.  

The leaves continue to arrive!  We expect more leaves through next week. I welcome help opening the bags of leaves on Saturday morning. (Just let us know you are coming) and take home some great food!

Quiet time is starting....

Hazel is back! She is pregnant and due midwinter. Our thanks to Leah Mack, at whose farm Hazel and Daisy spent the summer with a virile bull.  Now we want to find Daisy, a pure-bred Jersey, a new home. She is pregnant and due mid-spring. Interested? Please contact me. Thanks. Sally
