Yesterday I had the door open and all day in the background was the sound of leaves rustling across the ground. Labor Day brought with it the orange undertone that creeps into everything green. Even the light is getting that low angled rust color to it and the squirrels and I are rushing to hoard the end of summer bounty.


In among tomatoes of every shape and size, the first little Benning’s Patty Pan squash. Fresh light green, to remind me that in the not too distant future it will all start over with spring.

    Ah, yes, scrambling to beat the squirrels to harvest YOUR bounty. 🙂

    Lovely words. I hauled 25 lbs of paste tomatoes (from just 2 plants!!) home from our Project Grow garden last week. The garden’s bounty is gaining on me this year.
