After having been totally focused on the book for most of the summer, I’m glad to have had an opportunity to get back to some of the regular, day-to-day tasks and activities around our home and garden this fall, at a more relaxed pace. Here are a little bit of what we’ve been up to lately…..
The cold frame prepped and ready for planting in late September…..
Pizza hot off the grill…..enjoying the last days of alfresco dining this fall.
Ian loves to hide among the cabbages….
Connor cooking on his own for the first time (with me close by, of course ). He cut up carrots and sauteed them in a bit of olive oil. His idea, and all his doing….and the result was delicious!
And of course Ian is close behind his big brother…he’s a big fan of peeling an cutting any vegetable he can get his hands on.
The boys loved removing dried corn from the ear with this awesome device at the Common Ground Fair!
A bit of pumpkin carving for Halloween….
And of course, there’s been lots of leaf-raking and general clean-up going on around here…..
….as well as manure-spreading on the garden….
…and eel grass-collecting for the garden.
Hope you’ve enjoyed your fall as well!
