autumn certainly has arrived here at second and edgemont.
things are slowing down a bit out there but there is still quite an abundance.
the light is changing and so has the garden's palette.

every few days i find just a handful of cherry tomatoes.
but herbs like thyme and sage are still plentiful. i plan to hang some to dry this week on the sun porch.

the hens are molting and like the nightly temps their egg supply has dipped.
but the horseradish is ready to be harvested. it's  doubled in size from last year.  time to make horsradishy deviled eggs!

the cone flower has all gone to seed.
but the dwarf weeping crab apple tree is dripping with fruit. i'll leave a few for the birds but the rest will be combined with other apples to make a tart applesauce and butter.

what's still growing in your garden?


  1. Wow that spider web is beautiful!!

    Right now I still have some sweet peppers that are starting to ripen. I haven't grown sweet peppers before but I swear it is the sweetest sweet pepper I've ever tasted. My cherry tomatoes are almost at harvests end... I don't want the season to end!!

  2. Although autumn is a season which brings you the news that winter is just a step away but still it is not my fav season, every things seems really dull in it
