Happy HolyDays!

A lovely display of our "Noella" mold which shimmers gold in the light

As  the longest day of the year approaches, it is always nice to have a reminder that spring will eventually come again. In  the world of a "caver",   cheese  "in bloom"  with it's beautiful varied assortments of microflora" (molds) will most certainly bring a smile.... but for  now, even for the cheese, it is  time to rest.
 The  temperature in the cave now  hovers just below 50F, the molds grow more slowly, the cheese  ages more slowly and I even find myself moving more slowly. This is the time to rest, rejuvenate, and allow the natural cycle of the earth to replenish our depleted energy reserves, a much easier task once the holidays have swiftly  moved passed us!

A stack of  natural mold rinded cheese waiting for their "bath".

Everyone here at LoveTree (above ground and below!) wish you all a restful and serene HolyDay Season!
