Fall is definitely in the air. There's a cold bite to the morning and evening air that has been missing the past few months and it's something to be truly grateful for. Everyone is posting pumpkin this and pumpkin that and all I can post is a pumpkin colored hat and a little garden space.
This garden has been one of my most productive years, literally made me giddy every time I went to harvest. It produced over 23 pounds of potatoes, 25 pounds of green beans, 20 pounds of zucchini (and uhm...more that literally just went to the chickens because how can one family possible eat that much zucchini?!?!), couple pounds of onions, just a handful of raspberries, 12 pounds of blueberries, and a nice assortment of kale, cabbage, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
Now it's time to clean up. Time to put the girls to work alongside me while we put the beds to rest for the winter. Weekly goals include finishing tilling up the garden, laying down some mulch, letting the girls tackle the weeds and aerate the space for me. I think I see a cup of coffee and some knitting taking place while I watch them work.
Happy Fall Y'all!
