Chapter 10…October

Be thankful, take some time and watch the leaves turn.

October Fun Facts

  • Germany’s Oktoberfest originally began on October 17, 1810, the wedding day of King Ludwig I.
  • Dayight Savings Time ends every year at 2:00 A.M. local time on the last Sunday of October.
  • When deer are in a grey coat in October, expect a hard winter.
  • Much rain in October, means much wind in December
  • A warm October means a cold February
  • The first Thanksgiving feast in the U.S. was held in 1621 when the Pilgrims celebrated their harvest. However, the Americans did not invent Thanksgiving. English navigator Martin Frobisher held a celebration of thanks in 1578 in what is now Newfoundland as he had survived the long journey over the seas.

Secret Recipes At The Farmers’ Market!

Apple Pie Contest!

The last market of the 2018 Season is this Sunday.

We will be hosting our 2nd annual Apple Pie Contest at the MOD. Dust off your family’s favourite recipe, shop of fresh local apples, bake it and bring it to the Museum just before noon.

There will be 3 prizes. All the pies will be sold by the slice or by the pie for a donation to the local food bank.

Please join us for another great market.

Some of our vendors will be at the Creemore Winter Market running from Dec to Mar. More info on this to follow next month.


Not So Hollow Farm News

October is still a great time to plant trees and shrubs. We are still operating with normal hours (9am-
5pm Thurs – Sat) through the month of October. Stop in for trees, shrubs or tasty treats!

Basil Bumper Crop

Our pesticide-free veggie garden provided a bumper crop of basil this year which we recently harvested
and turned into some delicious products.

Herbes Salees make a great seasoning addition to stews, ratatouille, soups, marinades…

Our basil salts (purple & green) are great as a finishing salt to any dish – try them on homemade focaccia
– delish!   Both purple ruffle and Genovese basil jellies pair wonderfully with cheese.

All make great gifts and are available at our farm kiosk.

Lifeactually – A Photography Exhibit – Photography by Pete Paterson

Sunday, October 28th – 2pm opening. Runs until December 23, 2018
Life isn’t easy. We set goals, face challenges, overcome hurdles and try to hold onto our Vision. We keep going, because we each bring something to this world that no one else has in exactly the same way. Some of the greatest barriers people face are the stereotypes about what it means to have a developmental disability. These photographs remind us that there are more things that tie us together than hold us apart. They are about LIFE at its best – finding meaning and joy in our relationships, our work, our hobbies, and our communities. They are about the ways that we all contribute to making the world a stronger and more vibrant place.
