Happy Monday!

Nothing earth-shattering to report today, but I did want to note a few interesting items from this past weekend.

I saw some absolutely gorgeous squashes prominently displayed for sale at New Seasons in Portland's Concordia neighborhood this past weekend.

Yep. The squash came from none other than Clark County superstar farmer April Jones and her awesome crew at Gus & Co. Sweet!

My family and I were also fortunate to have been on the guest list for a very nice farm dinner and tour at Nelson & Anne Lawrence's place, Storytree Farm, on Sunday. The meal was punctuated by guided walks around the various areas of Storytree Farm which is one of the coolest farms I've ever been to. Nelson and Anne run a CSA through Storytree and their shares sell out quickly every year. One trip to their farm and you'll understand why!
The dinner was a very nice multi-course affair presented by Chef Anna Petruolo and her partner Lisa Gibbons of A Dinner Together private chef and catering service.

That's all for now.
