Chilly Mornings, Warm Days

The mornings have become quite chilly and the evenings are getting dark, sooner than I’d like.  But even though fall is in the air I’m still harvesting summer crops, tons of tomatoes, summer squash, basil, and the last of the cucumbers.

This is such an abundant time at the farm with summer crops still producing and the fall crops like pumpkins, potatoes, and popcorn beginning to be harvested.

Everyday there is so much to be harvested it leaves little time for anything else.  These September days can be a bit overwhelming at the farm but also very fulfilling, as all that you are harvesting is the result of the hard work you put in back in the spring.
