 Already September 15th and the harvest is beginning to wind down.  I know that you must be tired of seeing my gardening and all the preserve pictures.  Sorry, that's all I have to offer right now. 

I harvested some Rhubarb from the center of the plant as these were still tender. The outer stalks were a bit tough and fibrous.

I made three batches of Rhubarb, Strawberry, Pineapple jam, one of my husband's favorite. Such a quick recipe to make. The recipe is available online. 

On the weekend  I dug up my Norland red potatoes and my Yukon Gold potatoes but forgot to take a photo of the Yukon Gold as I was pretty tired by then. They've been put in storage in the cold room.   I still have a lot more to dig up but I'm waiting for the tops to die down first. These are the earlier ones.

Still picking fresh veggies every day in my metal mesh basket. I love this basket as I can spray it with the water hose to clean it up. 

My little corn patch has been a great success with the corn bags and they stayed sweet and tender right to the end. We ate the last of the corn yesterday. The patch has been cleaned up but the stubs will have to be cut flush to the ground as it was too difficult to dig the roots up. I'll let them rot in the ground.

I saved the corn stalks and ties them up in bundles for fall decorations and George hung them up in the carport to dry upside down.  Once dried, they may sell at the church Farmer's Market. It's better than letting them go to waste. Someone may get some enjoyment from them, It was a lot of work...

And now flowers for your enjoyment and mine. They will soon all be gone. My photos didn't all

uploaded as I selected them. The Rudbeckias are for my blogger friend Elephant's Child, the fourth photo on the right.



There is still a bit of color left although the flower gardens are on the decline and are starting to look neglected.
