Flower Pinwheels and Mushroom Delights

Our helper for this season had her last day Friday. If you are lucky enough to know Emily, you know that not only is she sweet, genuine, honest, and loving, she is also capable of putting together awesome presents that make your heart go pitter-patter. This is a pinwheel of WILDFLOWER SEEDS!!!! Collected from local wildflowers!!! I am so excited. Atamasco-lily (Zephranthes atamasca) with the sexy title '2010 NC Wildflower of the Year', beautyberry, american alumroot, and many more. BUT THAT IS NOT ALL. The pinwheel was attached to a growler full of the new and local Fullsteam Brewery's Summer Basil brew. And to continue my praises, we also received this very entertaining link from her this past week.
We were able to offer a fun task on the last day....cutting mushrooms. Our oysters finally flushed with one whopper of a clump weighing over 1 1/2 lb. It hasn't been the best mushroom season, so it was nice to get some for market. A great way to end the season.
