It's finally starting to feel like fall
here on the farm. The nights are cool and our days
have cooled off but are still comfortable in the 70's.
The tomatoes are still producing although we'll
be covering them soon to try and keep them going
a while longer.
The stawberries are still plucking away.
Not bad for their very first year.
The pumpkins and squash died before they
produced anything really usable
but they started up again.
I doubt they'll have time to do much
before the first frost.
The Basil is doing great!
Same with the Sage.
Old Socretese still guards the garden.
You can see the foundation of the old barn
that burned down in August.
We still have to cut the trees down
that were destroyed by the heat of the fire.
The last of the berry looking thing that grows
around the farm.
I think it's a weed that can be used for something
but I don't know what!
Can anyone fill me in on this?
This is the building that we have sold
and must be taken down and removed before the end of the year. I'm REALLY looking forward to being able to see
out into the fields beyond and to the trees along the creek.
My garden helper Olly
Lolly Gags I call him sometimes.
He's such a nice cat.
Romeo strutting his stuff.
He's on the lookout for Mr Lucky our
Buff Orpington cockerel.
My favorite and my oldest hen
she loves me.
I lift her off the roost every morning.

Can't wait for that building to be gone!
The sad remains of our old barn.
It still hurts to see it like this.

This is all that I was able to pull out of the barn
during the fire.
We had at least 50 antique bird feeders in there
that I had planned on selling.
I saw one at the flea market for $75...I nearly cried.
The old coop/garden shed
The trees are starting to turn now with the cooler weather. I'm sad to see summer go
but there's something very special about fall.
It's time to 'nest'.
So with that in mind I am off to start
working on the piece I found
for the bathroom vanity!
What are you up to this weekend?
