Tuesday Food Gathering and Early Fall Update
I wrote this post last week, but am just getting around to posting it today.
Tuesday is Hope’s Edge CSA pick-up day.
And this past Tuesday I picked up my year’s supply of local raw honey: Sparky’s Honey. The back of the car was filled with local goodies. You can see a description of the kind of food I get from Hope’s Edge in an earlier post.
AC Slater continues to be a honey lamb. Here he is on his “perch.” The rock wall houses numerous chipmunks, and AC is “on the job” with regard to anything that moves or makes noise on my property.
I am loving how this strip by the path is looking–so cheerful with the zinnias that replaced earlier daffodils. That Blue Hubbard squash vine has not produced a single fruit this year. It’s been a kind of strange squash year in my area.
I like this zinnia variety.
I let the early pansies stay too long in the barrels–just could not part with them. When I finally overprinted, the plants took off. I am especially liking the purple salvia (?) and the small asters that are just starting to bloom.
I am breaking down spent pots and starting to put summer things away. The hammock has been stored. And the porch pillows. I can’t let go of the hanging baskets or the wind chimes yet. Soon enough…
Not much sewing happening what with AC Slater, but he is settling really well now, so I’ll have more time. I am excited about winter sewing projects.
