Fall is here for sure — 11 Comments

  1. My very picky eater wife was sampling some Barry’s Crazy Cherry tomatoes I’d just picked and she said, “We have to grow these again next year.” I couldn’t agree more. They are prolific producers with great tomato flavor.

    I now have a table full of Hopi Grey Squash–another great producer, but too invasive for our small raised beds. If there was a bush version of this I’d grab it in a second.

    • We really love Barry’s Crazy Cherry too! And so hugely productive. Nope, Hopis are not for raised beds. The vines are very rampant, climbing trees and fences even. But boy do they make lots of wonderful squash.

  2. I am very happy that you are making your pictures available in the large format, Will cutting hay has been my screen saver for quite a while, so peace full looking out over the cut windrowed hay. David is going to have a great tree top view from his second story, will be almost like living in a tree house. I am really impressed with the progress that he is making on his cabin. Thanks for your Blog.

    • You can thank Jessie for that! She does a great job formatting the blog. Yes, David will have a great view. I think we’ve all fantasized about living in a tree house and now he will! He’s really coming along but winter’s coming…..

  3. I used to grow the Indian corn. Did you know that you can get lavender mush from all purple kernels? – lol

    • Hmmm. Stands to reason, though. It would go with David’s favorite purple potatoes….

  4. The pumpkin is Iran and is from Iran, originally. We first grew them last year and were really impressed. Not only are they beautiful and productive but taste great too! Our largest one weighs 45 pounds this year…with no special pruning or other care.
    The beavers aren’t talking yet but I’ll let you know when they are.

  5. I just love all the produce pictures that you share with us! Thank you! That corn today and the pumpkins are lovely. What is that smaller pumpkin that is green and orange stripes?

    So what are the beavers saying for winter this year? We are having pouring rain now so it’s time for indoor chores.
