The cottonwoods have been absolutely electric-gold this fall. And if that’s not enough, throw in all the pink leaves and blue berries of the Virginia Creeper and it’s almost too heart stopping to take it all in. Walking around the farm, or biking through the bosque, it’s easy to believe we live in the most beautiful place in the world. It was that kind of day Sunday for Bike In Coffee. It started off very cold, (29-degrees), but two fire pits quickly became the hub for cyclists sipping on hot coffee or soup and the morning began melting into a beautiful warm day.
Once again, Lael & Nicholas took over the kitchen and came up with some wonderful additions to the menu. “Puff Babies”, crisp little tarts filled with Old Town Farm jams, hit the spot. Later in the day when the sun had warmed us all, an improvised salad made from 6 different garden greens, daikon and onions was a crispy, cool refreshment.
Again, our thanks go out to The BikeSmith. For those of you who live in this part of town, it’s good to know there’s a good bike shop right in the middle of the neighborhood. The BikeSmith is located right behind the St. Clair Restaurant on Rio Grande Blvd. We’re looking forward to working with Rick and Rose, (pictured), as well as Ross on some exciting bike events next spring, (including a night ride)!
It’s looking a little dicey for next Sunday, (Nov 11). The forecast is calling for snow on Saturday and highs in the 40s on Sunday. Be sure to check back in with the Old Town Farm homepage on Wednesday. We’ll know by then if we’ll be open for coffee on Sunday.
