Now that September is firmly established, I've been harvesting the carrots, beets and potatoes. Most of the carrots and potatoes went into containers of Debbi's famous carrot soup which will warm our stomachs and souls throughout the winter. Since I plant double rows of 60' in length there's a lot left to be processed.

Yesterday, we picked more than 100 apples from our five small trees - Delicious, Courtland, McIntosh. A tastey apple pie soon emerged from the oven - what a pleasure.

In addition, I have now planted my four cold frames with spinach and lettuce seeds- hoping to get a crop before December sets in. They will then go dormant only to re-energize in early February.

What a way to live!
