A wonderful year of production, and of course, a bumper crop of tomatoes, because we did not track the bounty! So much gratitude goes forth to everyone involved, including all plant devas and Elemental beings who tended everything so perfectly, while we got so busy with life’s various activities and demands.
It is the usual wind-down time of rest for all. Some lettuce, kale, and chard are braving the battering of November winds and rain.
A glimpse of some bounty as it occurred along the way. Enjoy!

Ultra-prolific ‘Early Girl’ tomato; no greenies to be had on this vine!
Wind-down and clean up as flaming fall glory sets in..
Prime time in the house yard!
Our beloved Bambie has become frustrated…or desperate… in not being able to eat more tomato vines, nor get into my yard; so she’s taken to eating zucchini leaves off the stalk!
Not what you'd think to be a deer's delight...coarse zucchini leaves...
Shifting weather all over….a lot of rain during the first half of the month, so all tomatoes were pulled in, as well as squash and melons. No rot wanted! So, it’s looking a bit bare as the season comes to a close. Lettuce, arugula, and leeks are doing great!

The season of transition is upon us…..Autumnal equinox…shorter days…the midway point of light and dark…in this region that is essentially the midway latitude of the Northern Hemisphere…halfway between the equator and the North Pole. The bounty continues….
