The garden is full of tomatoes, peppers, root vegetables and herbs.
Visit my Instagram @Downtoearthdigs for more images of life in the garden.
The last of the carrots are pulled from the garden.
I enjoy my time in the garden– more than I enjoy the work in the kitchen.
But of coarse, the work must be done.
Tomatoes have been roasted,
Apples have been turned to Apple Butter, and pie fillings,
Soups have been made for the Winter months,
Herbs have been dried.
As the last week of September arrives,
so too have the cool mornings and evenings.
Our first hard frost arrived yesterday, forcing me into a faster pace of finishing the harvest.
Tea in the garden this morning required a woolen wrap.
Tomatoes, carrots, swiss chard, peppers still to put up.
Herbs to dry.
