I really have no idea where the summer went!
It seems like just a few weeks ago we were putting the tomato and pepper plants in the ground while watching the first of our popcorn seeds push up through the cool spring soil.
And in what seems like the blink of an eye – the garden crops have been all but harvested, canned and preserved. Meanwhile, as a tell-tell sign that fall has indeed arrived – those tiny popcorn seedlings have grown tall and turned a dull, papery shade of brown, revealing their full cobs of future tasty evening snacks.
Fall is without a doubt one of our favorite times of the year. It’s a time to enjoy the beautiful and every changing pallet of colors in nature’s final farewell before the cold and darkness of winter. Its also hard to beat flavor of a simmering pot of garden chili on the stove – or the taste of freshly made applesauce or apple pie!
So for this week’s Sunday farm update – we thought we would share the sights of fall settling in at the farm – we hope you enjoy the pictures below…
Jim and Mary – Happy Gardening!
