#SlowCookerMeals: Apple Cider Pork Roast with Smoked Bacon

  SPG-1

October. It always seems to be one of the busiest months of the year to me, perhaps it’s that way for you too. Abundant choices among harvest days, and festivals, farmers markets bursting with the year’s broadest selection, last chance displays from summers harvest, to the changing root crops of the cooler season ahead. The ‘Pick Your Own’ takes us from memories of peaches to crisp, ripe apples, this year producing a seeming bumper crop out at the orchards.

Big Harvest Potluck, ‘come hungry and leave full in every (meaningful) way’

IMG_7194.CR2

From the seeds of the earth, together we picnicked on a selection of fresh picked colorful vegetables from the working home farm of George Ball, CEO of Burpee Company, touchingly planted just for us, to reaching up, up, and away in a hot air balloon, seemingly symbolic of reaching for the stars, and then, well, pretty much everything nourishing in between captured the many special moments shared at the Big Harvest Potluck whose main event was hosted at the Fordhook Farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania last weekend.
