A Handful of Goodness

These chilly nights are sneaking up on us!  For our little farm, this means harvesting the last of the Summer produce and planting the Fall gardens.  This was my first year growing sweet potatoes and they surprised me with how huge they are!

The regular potatoes are here as well - there are plenty to dig for dinner each night, and they'll be fine to stay underground until the weather gets pretty cold.

Reed's job each day is to do a lot of chicken tending.  He feeds them each morning and collects their eggs through the day.  We're starting to get quite the bounty of eggs as all of the hens are laying now!  The duck doesn't seem to be laying yet... not sure when that will start.

Of course I can't resist to add some photos of the youngins - I do love the nice hot Summer, but something about snuggling up in a sweater is a great feeling, too!  Here's ZB wearing the first sweater of the season...

I'll leave you with a shot of Reed goofing it up for the camera - he always like to be featured on the blog!  Happy Fall everyone!
