It’s always a sad reality day when I take down the jenny wren houses to store them for winter. It means no more of the sweet song from those little birds till next May. But it’s time.
It’s also time for the garden to really slow down. The cucumbers are just about done, with only a couple deformed ones to pick now every couple days. Tomatoes are still going good tho. I have already eaten, shared and frozen a lot of 3 kinds of them.
Sweet and hot peppers are still doing good. Kidney beans and black turtle beans are over, but the Hopi lima beans are just now really starting to produce, and I’ll be picking them for several weeks. Some days my old pickin’ basket is pretty full, other days not so much. But every day is still a good garden day when I can collect some of the blessings of the earth.
We’ve been eating summer squash called pattipans. and there are winter squash called sweet muffins developing well.
Fall will come, winter will follow, all according to the way things go as the wheel of the year continues to turn. I hope you have had a good summer despite the virus, and have enjoyed a lot of good things that the good earth produced. And we roll along. Be well, be safe, be happy.
