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!
Once there was a jungle...

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….
