into the garden
The weather is getting chillier, and since last night we had frost, I decided it was time to take inventory in the garden. This old bed frame hold up beans in the peak of summer....just a memory now, it's leaning against the nectarine tree at the entrance. P. #2 pleads with me: "Let's go pick something mommy!"
We had rain earlier this week, so everything is lush and green. This is a favorite spot for the hens to hang out, full of sweet grass and luscious slugs. P. #2 has the eagle eye for pickables.
The harvest: peppers, tomatoes, and a couple of very sweet little zucchini. This very well may be our last "picking" of the year. Now in we go to make a little fresh pasta sauce. Thanks for coming!
