If the weather is lovely like it is this year, we continue to have snacks from our little growing space.
This week we are eating beans, peppers, arugula, radishes and broccoli raab. The snow peas are over a foot tall but do not have flowers yet.

The calendula planted around and inside the vegetable garden to attract pollinators is working double time as most of our flying friends are finding shelter under leaf piles every night now that it's in the 30s after dark.
Most years, I just keep planting with the thought that sunny, warm fall days will never end. Some years they stick around until January and like most gardeners, each year I hope this will be one of those .
In the meantime, we planted new fruit trees, a new shade tree, hundreds of daffodil bulbs and have been generally enjoying the time outside. Long may it last!
