Yes, October came knocking at my door and September got a little upset and whirled out of here, with leaves littering my front lawn. I went for a little trip uptown and the leaves are changing so fast. What a beautiful sight, the leaves are so colorful already. I was driving so I couldn't take any photos.
We are still harvesting nature's gifts. My son Vaughan and George are picking crab apples on the front lawn and almost filled a large box. George wants me to make some crabapple jelly again this year.
And this is the lower end. The center was picked a few weeks ago. We gave away a lot and sold some and put the rest in storage for the family.
Here are some bottles of salsa in the boiling water bath for 20 minutes. Oh, yummy salsa.
My curiosity got the best of me and I dug up some sweet potatoes from my experiment. I was actually surprised to get some this size as our growing season is short and they need long season and lots of heat to grow.
I dug up the rest as it's been cold and they announced rain for the next three days. I got about 25 pounds.
A friend gave me a bag of apples and I made this apple pie and dehydrated the rest, then my sister-in-law, Pauline gave me 2 big bags of apples that she picked at a U-Pick and I'm still dehydrating some. They are so good, I eat them like candy in the winter. I would like to go pick apples to dehydrate more.
One of George's second crop of cabbage. He sold a lot but this one was starting to split. I put it next to the pie for perspective.
I deadheaded the Rudbeckia to prevent them from growing all over the lawn.
I dug up some daylilies and gave away a lot but I still need to dig up some more on the end of the rows.
That's it for this evening. I hope that you are all staying well and happy.
