This weekend we’re harvesting much of the garden. It’s been a largely disappointing year because of the cold, wet weather that the Lower 48’s draught locked over us. Even so, we got some impressive artichokes, some decent carrots (which the local carrot thief never found), and only slightly fewer potatoes than last year. No pumpkins, but I can’t complain—we’re lucky we got anything at all!
There’s still a lot to do if we want to get most of the harvest in before we take off on a big trip in early October.
Incidentally, today is the Autumnal Equinox in our area. Although the official equinox, when daylight and darkness balance, occurred Saturday, the 22nd, we strike our light/dark balance today.
