Today we officially marked the Autumnal equinox at exactly 1:02 P.M. PST.
From here on out, the days start to get shorter than the nights and temperatures began to drop as we march ever closer to our olive harvest. So to celebrate, we wanted to share an Ode to 1st day of Fall and to a bountiful new season of "olio nuovo" or "new oil"!
"Lady Autumn, Queen of the Harvest,
I have seen You in the setting Sun...
In Your hands You hold the ripened fruits...You are here at last.
We thank You for Your rewards.
We have worked hard for these gifts.
Lady Autumn, now grant us peace and rest."
- Deirdre Akins
