Breaking out the frost covers & Cranking up the farmhouse kitchen's oven!

Well…well I do declare it feels like fall after all. This morning my son climbed out of bed and proclaimed “that’s is too cold to go to school this morning..think I will be sleep in”. Yea right young haven’t felt cold yet.

Mark, Viki and myself spent much of the day yesterday harvesting the warm season stuff that can’t take the least little bit of frost on their leaves. Peppers and eggplant, snap beans plus a few okra.  I do intend on covering these plants with frost blankets but that may only help a bit..if it dips too cold we will have seen the end of these vegetables for the season. It is always so hard for me to let go of the season. I just keep wanting to play in the dirt.  We have had a wonderful fall this year and a great CSA season as well…and by no means is our CSA season over…y’all still have a couple more pickups to go. I just mean over in terms of looking out my farmhouse kitchen window and seeing a field of flowers, a field of greens and a porch full of unruly chickens poopin’ all over…oops…drifting to the dark side there…sorry. Anyway.

I could help but take a break from all the harvesting and snap a few pictures to share with y’all. The cool weather as really brought out the colors in these red Celoisa..they are just beautiful.

The sunflowers are giving us one last big smiley face before old man winter comes knockin’ …and yes that is on of our honey bees feasting..and making that flower field honey we all love.

This weekend for our market and CSA we have some wonderful, sweet romaine lettuces.  Along with some great tasting Napa Cabbage.
