Linda, I loved the photos you took during your visit, and which you shared in "Small Potatoes". Here are two photos of our hills from the lookout point. They were taken by your sister-in-law during peak color and are two of my favorite fall photos of our land.
This is a view of the ridges, with a bit of meadow showing on the lower right. The meadows bloom with wild flowers of all sorts from early spring into fall. We keep parts of it mowed and use the mowings as mulch on our vegetable gardens. This past week has been "leaf rain" week, and my Gardening Buddy has been picking them up and piling them on the gardens for their winter blanket.
We've had a couple of light frosts with more to come. The 'life-changing garlic" has been planted, and today we are bringing in the last of the beets, carrots, and digging up the sweet potatoes. The brussels sprouts and kale will follow before the ground freezes.
The gardening cycle continues.
