Good Afternoon, It is a sunny, spring-like day in January. We have 52°. Even though we think we should be having snow, I will enjoy this weather while it is here. Seems like we should do something outdoors, but there really isn’t anything to do except dig carrots out of the garden for fresh eating. [...]

Good morning everyone, I lifted the shades at the window this morning and, wow! The ground was white with snow. Yesterday had that cold, bone-chilling dampness in the air so it is no surprise that we got snow last night. After I did the laundry I went for a walk. The air was still hazy, [...]

Good Afternoon, Stepping out the front door of the store, cool crisp air greets me. It smells like Fall. Soft clouds are scattered over the sky mostly hiding the sun, but we can still see some blue sky. There is not much wind but the breeze that I can feel when I peek around the [...]

Good morning, Our weather is perfect for October. The mornings are crisp and cool. The sunshine out of a clear blue sky warms the air and we have very pleasant days. We had 38° yesterday morning and riding to church on an open buggy was a bit chilly but fun. The leaves on the trees [...]

Greetings to all our wonderful customers, I think every year I say the same thing on October 1st...“How is it possible that it’s October already?” Fall has pretty much always been my favorite time of the year and once again I’m looking forward to pumpkin pie, apple cider, mums and all the wonderful colors of [...]

Good morning everyone, It is Monday morning in the middle of September, and it is warm and sunny. When I first went outside this morning I thought it might feel cool, but it wasn’t cool for very long. The warmth we have had the last while still feels like summer, but Fall is coming. The [...]

Good morning everyone, It is Monday morning again and I hope everyone had a good and restful Sunday yesterday. I stopped outside the store to see what the weather is like. It is a beautiful summer day. The clouds are scattered in the blue sky and occasionally hide the sun for a little while. A [...]

Good morning everyone, Summer is here! We have had some very beautiful summer days. This morning it is slightly cloudy with a pleasant south breeze. Yes, we have had a lot of rain and the fields where the cows are grazing are still a lush green. As we drive through the countryside I notice the [...]

Greetings from the Ashery once again, I hope this finds you all doing well and enjoying your summer. I have been pinching myself to make sure it's actually July, but hey, here we are talking about plans for the Fall! They say time goes faster the older you get. If that's the way it is, [...]
