Autumn Approaching

Milk House.
To the East.
Blueberry Leaf.
Setting Sun
Just a few snaps taken on Sunday.

On a side note: I have an overwhelming urge to bake. I’m thinking of an Irish apple cake. Or blueberry muffins. Maybe some cornbread.

What about you? Does approaching autumn make you want to bake? Do you have any great recipe suggestions?

Garden Update

Garden Haul
There really isn’t anything new or exciting to mention in regards to the garden. Lots and lots of beans. Peppers. A few radishes. A few tomatoes.

Garden Girl.
Sometimes, I fear my outfit posts are a little deceptive. I tend to take photos when I get dolled up (which is when I go into town or just feel like fancying up my day a little—and have the time and energy to do so.) This is closer to what I look like most days. Jeans and a t-shirt. Hair up and frizzing out like crazy. Glasses on. Bean leaves embellishing my shirt. Muddy boots. Sporting really poor posture. Exhausted but content. Same old, same old.

We bought about 100 ears of corn and did that up for freezing on Friday night.

All the mums around here are looking lovely. I must say, they are quickly becoming a favorite flower of mine.

What have you been growing?

Hopefully I’ll get back to some regular blogging soon but for now, here is a smattering of photos of the going-ons, garden happenings and other what-nots.

This may very well have been the prettiest thing I made all summer. And it was mighty tasty too—though, honestly, how can you go wrong with homegrown veggies topped with cheese? Here is the recipe.

Harvesting herbs, here and there.

Bean Blossom
The second planting of bush beans are doing very well.

The overall harvest is dwindling but still producing enough to please me. (We got so many peppers this year!)

Been bringing my ginger in on these cooler nights.

Curious critters are always following me around outside.

And the morning light. Oh, the morning light.

Casting On
I cast on. (More details in a future post.)

I splurged. (Again, more details in a future post.)

What is life like by you?
