We have all spent the last week at Topsail island celebrating the last of the long days and kissing summer goodbye. Poppy's birthday was this week and we celebrated with a proper low country shrimp boil with fresh shrimp we bought right off the boat for $2/lb. Yes, TWO dollars per pound! And, they were amazing. Nana boiled the shrimp, red potatoes, corn on the cob, and andouille sausage in a mixture of beer, water, and old bay. It was the perfect way to celebrate Poppy and enjoy the last rays of summer.
Fall might be our favorite season around the farm. Doesn’t it just seem like farming and fall were made for each other. The sweat of summer is replaced with cozy scarves and hot mugs, campfires and chicken stews. Pumpkins, leaves, and hay bales decorate the landscape. The nights are filled with noises from nature, no city or traffic noises. The stars are bright and the air is fresh and crisp.
Personally, I cannot wait to get home, knock the sand off my shoes and decorate for my favorite season! Fall is the perfect time to be on the farm. You can’t have one without the other. Just like you can’t have summer without the beach, or winter without the mountains.
Fall is for the farm.
While we don’t have a huge pumpkin patch we do have a small vine just outside the Covered Barn where we laid a pumpkin to rest a year or so ago! Excited to see if we have any pumpkins this year.
And now we are sharing our little piece of heaven with you. If you are looking for an event venue for ANY occasion, come check out Rolling Hills Farm!
