Fall projects press on.
The road crew, just beyond the driveway outside, rumbles as it works to pave our road. We are nearly land-locked until the cement hardens.
The garden is nearly clean. Just this afternoon, I picked the last tomatoes off the plants. Some went to the chickens, but most went into the cellar for ripening.
Predictions say that we will have a cold weekend. The typical season changes are underway. Soon the leaves will rest on the forest floor and the cold of winter will overtake the farm again.
Yet, in spite of the oncoming harsh weather, I found one last summer treat waiting for me and my husband to share. The young, yellow raspberry plants we planted this spring are bearing fruit! They are golden and melt in our mouths with the sweetness of honey. Wow! What a treat.
