One day this past month the kids and I went out to collect a few last veggies before the frost came. As I was preparing some peppers for freezing, I found a fun little face staring back at me.
Here is what the farm looks like in the fall; my oldest walked around with little sister and took some photos of the place. The beans had not been taken down yet, but most of the other veggies were already done.
We had gone out as a family one Saturday to get some veggies out of the cellar ('grocery shopping' of a different kind) and to bring some firewood home for the upcoming cold weather.
After loading both pickups, we drove down to the bottom land, where the garden was, and had a family picnic.
Here are the last of our tomatoes - I sliced a ton of Romas and then put them in the dehydrator. I'm not sure what I'll do with them ... add to soups I guess. But at least I won't feel as if they were wasted.
As much as I love the changing cooler weather and toasty fireplaces, I think summer is my favorite season - with all of the fresh food and warm air, and free time!
