Rhonda at Down To Earth is hosting a Friday “On My Mind” picture post. It’s like a Wordless Wednesday but with a description explaining what the picture means to you.
These are my tomatoes being tucked in for the first frost last night. Most of my tomatoes are still green and on the plant, so they seem as surprised by the change in weather as I am. Our average first frost isn’t until October 18th, but a chill this early isn’t unheard of. I’ve started bringing in more of my dryed stuff. The quinoa has come in and it looks like it’ll be quite the ordeal processing it. Beans, corn, and sunflowers will soon follow. I’ll wait for the final numbers, but things didn’t seem to be as productive this year. And now that the garden is established pests have moved in and I got to start learning how to deal with them. It was certainly a more challenging season for me.
