I took some pictures last week of the garden in full bloom.

Then came the Wik Castle Harvest Market. This year was the best ever with great weather, lots of people and record sales.

Then yesterday was the first fall storm that blew down most of the sweet corn and sunflowers.

A haystack fell.

The tipi had to be rescued before it blew away.

Now tonight it is supposed to get below freezing, so if it isn’t blowing too much I’ll try to cover some of the pumpkin patch with light tarps so they can continue growing and ripening for perhaps a few more weeks. And tomorrow stand the sunflowers and corn up again with supports.

HAPPY EQUINOX!

The weather appears to be turning colder. Autumn is ending, and winter is coming on.

I found some more plants on sale last week, so in an end of season effort I planted 12 more trees and bushes completing one end of the hedge.

With frost holding firm, I got the second crop circle done – the clay soil turned over, ditching improved and leaves spread over the turned soil.

But not without plenty of rest in the ‘bus stop’.
