"Just enjoying a beautiful 70 degree fall day, hanging out on my deck!" ~Tiffany Hale

"Four days from forest to table. Harvested my first black bear with crossbow last Friday. Nourishing the family in the chili pot tonight." ~Iiro Lehtinen

"It was another beautiful day in the neighborhood! First we headed to UNH for Ocean Discovery Day. So, so much hands-on fun! Then off to The Colonel Paul Wentworth House to check out the Colonial Muster and Market Fair. The boys loved it! They asked alllll the people alllll of the questions. October in New Hampshire is my favorite." ~Jessica Bearden Paxton

"I love fall and changes of seasons in general. I’ve quickly come to appreciate New England's autumn traditions which, to me, are exotic from a Cali perspective, and at the same time, familiar from my Scandinavian upbringing. We had a nice afternoon at the Pumpkin Festival in Laconia today with friends." ~Peter Towers
