I love Autumn more than ever before in my life since we moved to the mountains. I took my camera with me for a walk today around the garden, orchard and yard.
Other recent goings on that don’t really show yet are: the appalachian red garlic is planted, some more lettuces and cilantro. No photos of the mint and kale, but they’re doing well. The truth be told, I enjoy the spring and fall gardens much more than the summer; it’s not too hot, which makes it wonderful to be outside.
Then I spent most of the day washing, re-washing, chopping and freezing kale. I’ll be going back to growing Nero Toscana kale from now on, as it was not only incredibly beautiful in the garden, but much smoother leaved and therefore less prone to hiding caterpillars in it’s furls and folds like this batch of Blue Curled Scotch.
