Hello! We are so enjoying this end-of-summer. The weather is cool enough and sunny enough to get lots of outdoor projects done and generally lots of outdoor play! Of course ZB is happy in any weather, and I thought I should document some of goodness... at some point every day she looks about like this:
Our garden is really pushing out in it's last bit of warm-ish weather. One of the fig trees in the front is going crazy for the first time (it is 3 years old). We get a big bowl-full every day now! Our tomatoes are finally ripening without rotting, since we're finally having a break from the rainy summer. And even when the squash bugs ate the leaves of the squash plants, we were still left with 3 good-sized Hubbard Squash. The one in the photo below had crept up onto a fence to grow, and the top actually grew through the fence, so had to be cut off so I could harvest it (and used right away). We've already made squash custard, grain-free squash bread and we're having squash soup for supper this week... yum!
