Signs of Autumn


All around the farm, there are signs of autumn. Mornings are chilly. The leaves are turning. The corn stalks are dry. The pumpkins are ready to harvest. The caterpillars have donned their wooly coats.

The garden is just about finished with the exception of a never ending supply of tomatoes and peppers. Honey production is slowing down and soon it will be time for another harvest. The new blueberry field made it through the summer with a few emergency waterings. The challenge ahead will be to combat the scavenging crows. We are considering building a reverse aviary....one to keep the birds out!

The animals are much happier with the cooler temperatures. You can tell by the smile on Donnie Brasco's face:
