Beneath the stillness of languid summer days,lies a swarm of busy-ness.

Our friend and renowned artist of nature, Mark Eberhard, captured the exquisite picture above, in our wetlands a few weeks ago. This stately Buttonbush is besieged with attention from caterpillars, butterflies, and bees, unannounced to glance from afar, reinforcing that things are not always as they seem. 

Summertime wildflowers present themselves for moments, bringing grace to intense heat. Hibiscus, Iron Weed, and Black-eyed Susans below adorn the skirts of summer.

Summer stillness calls for light meals. Pastured eggs make delicious omelettes. Below on the right, a 7-egg omelette is accompanied by Bob's heirloom tomatoes and baked pasta & ratatouille (eggplant, zuchinni, sweet peppers, onions, tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil). 

We now offer Vietnamese as well as Moroccan sliders. Susan's restless mind always conceives of new variations. The Vietnamese slider features lemongrass, Siraracha hat sause, anchovy fish sauce, soy sauce, ginger and other. It is truly delicious, especially accented with her homemade mayonnaise of same spices. We currently have a limited amount of the homemade mayonnaise for sale, but will have more in the future. It is so good, it is best eaten by the spoonful.

Next delivery to Bellecrest & Pape Avenues is Wednesday afternoon at 4:00, on September 2, with orders to be placed through: http://grassrootsfoods.biz/on-line-purchasing


We look forward to seeing you on Sunday the 23rd, in summer stillness,


Drausin & Susan
