Leaving La Plant and the harvest, for now

Leaving La Plant and the harvest, for now

On most farms, September is the month when the weeds stop being as crazy, the harvest is plentiful yet manageable, and you complain only slightly less. So, closing the latch on the garden gate for the final time felt sudden and an odd way to pause a blossoming relationship. 

Fall on the farm

October is the month of painted leaves. Their rich glow now flashes round the world. As fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall, so the year near its setting. October is its sunset sky; November the later twilight.
— Henry David Thoreau
