scones, cider, books!

Oh my, friends, it's July, and things are happening!

First off, for all you who have been asking: THE FIRST COFFEE & SCONES IS THIS SUNDAY! July 13th, 9am....we'll try our darndest to have fresh berries in those scones (come on, sun). And whipped cream, and coffee, and tea, and something cool and refreshing for the younger crowd. Can't wait to see you all!

Second, Whetstone CiderWorks will be there on Sunday morning selling their delicious ciders! (Have we over-used the exclamation point, yet? Robin is writing this, and she is caffeinated.) But really, what's better than picking up your favorite bottle of local cider for the evening while you're basking in the sun with your friends in the morning. The word on the road is that Whetstone CiderWorks has developed a cult following in Brooklyn, NY...folks there say it's "the best" and "the real deal." Just think--you can meet the famous (and mysterious) cider makers in person while eating fresh berry scones!

Third, Robin's essay "Sugaring," which appeared in Orion Magazine, has just come out their new anthology of food writing. It can be purchased from their site (here), or, tada, even better, purchased at the stand alongside your cider, your coffee and your scone. The book includes work by Jane Hirshfield, Maxine Kumin, Barbara Kingsolver, Tamar Adler, and others. It will help convince you that buying local, and buying fresh, really is the best thing.

And now, out to enjoy all the green....
