Things are fading into fall around here. We've had our first freeze and so the garden is done. I went out and told it thanks for the great year!
Last week we harvested the rest of the pumpkins, squash, cucumbers, and tomatoes. The corn didn't quite have time to mature, but we had 5 or 6 good ears. All in all we had a pretty decent harvest considering the crazy dry year we had.
Leaves are turning beautiful shades of yellow, orange, and red. We even had a little snow a few days ago.
Fall always seems like the end to spring's beginning to me. This year is no different. Except maybe a little bit more nostalgic as we plan for this to be our last fall here. (Did I mention we found land we want to buy and will likely be moving?! I'll post on that soon.) I find myself enjoying the leaves a little bit more. Enjoying our walks with the goats a little bit more. Revelling in the awesomeness of this place.
Not in a sad way, but in a thankful way. I'm thankful for our time here. BUT I look forward to moving to more land. To taking this homesteading thing up a few notches! At the same time we'll miss this place. Lots of great memories here.
