Last of the Crop

Sorry for the bad Blackberry photo

It's officially the end of the growing season here in Upstate New York. All the gardens and cropfields have been overturned, resting for winter. The pumpkins have all been plucked from the patch, and now, the apples have all been picked. I just came in from the orchard and was happy to find about a dozen little beauties hanging precariously, as if one more mighty gust would knock them to the ground. I always love how big the last apples of the season get, and these four are no exception.

So, what are your weekend plans? Halloween parties, or just staying in? I am hoping to finish the kids' costumes tonight, and complete the Halloween goodies for any trick-or-treaters. We also have a delivery of firewood coming tomorrow morning (snow is expected next week). I'd love to hear about your plans, and have a safe Halloween.

Hi Deanna, your apples look great. I love to go out to our friends orchard and just eat them off the tree's. Hope you have a great Halloween, things around here will probably be low key for the night! Oh, and I wanted to thank you for participating in my 'Fall Q&A's' :)

Hi Sarah, thanks for your note! It's so nice to have all these fruit trees here on the farm, we're very fortunate. I loved your Q&A - I like to talk about myself, mainly... hahaha! Have a great Halloween and I hope you'll check in often.
