Our friends Robin and Larry came to visit at the end of August and Robin took a whole bunch of REALLY good pictures of the garden. Here they are.
|I'm really starting to love this cat|
|Marigold, calendula, cosmos|
|Buckwheat cover crop. Makes wonderful, dark honey.|
|Pumpkins and winter squash, with corn playing back-up|
|Finally, it has been such a good year for tomatoes. |
I've canned over 30 quarts so far... and there are more coming!
|See the honeybee?|
|Cat in the comfrey. I can only hope this is a mouse stake out.|
|Calabrese... 2nd growth.|
|This is where I found the hummingbird-moth last month.|
|Good year for apples. Past 2 years it was rainy when apple blossoms were out. |
This year, sunny days for the bees meant better fruit set. Yeah!
|These are such happy flowers|
|Larry and the kids playing baseball with windfall apples. Chickens getting a feast.|
|Hawk, keeping an eye on her flock of chickens|
|Meat chickens. Freedom Rangers, or Label Rouge.|
|Finally planted the grapes this spring. They're at the top now!|
|Drying garlic in the shop|
|I think this is a rather good shot Robin captured of a pile of firewood.|
|Layers... Golden sex-linked, Dominique, Speckled Sussex.|
|The south garden. Check out the new greenhouse in the background. Thanks, Mom and Dad!|
|Peas... for the fall. First time I've done this. Sowed seeds mid-July. Ate first one today, Fall Equinox. Worth repeating.|
