Hidey-ho neighbor!


Mighty fine weather we’re having, isn’t it?


Good harvesting weather for sure!

Actually, this week has been a little dismal – foggy & rainy, but at least it has stayed warm. All in all though, September has been pretty decent.

I have been bringing in a steady stream of tomatoes. Plus a few carrots, when we want them, and this past weekend I picked a lot of tomatoes, even some that weren’t quite ripe. I’m hoping the weather is going to stay warm for a bit, but you never know.

So there’s been a lot of this…



And this past Sunday my kitchen table looked like this…


No that I’m complaining.

Among other things, we’ve had pretty salads…


We tried out a new recipe for Tomato and Egg Soup…



It was a hit and we ended up making it two nights in a row.

And of course, some salsa…


I haven’t made nearly as much as I made last year; somehow it just seems like there hasn’t been time. I’m sure I’ll manage to put up a few more batches before the tomatoes are gone though.

Not this weekend, though, because my Mom is coming to visit. She doesn’t usually come by herself, usually my Dad & brother come too, but she had the opportunity to travel with someone this weekend, so she’ll be here tomorrow evening.

So, I will just give you a hello from the Fabulous Felines…



And a nod from some Sunflowers…


And then I’ll say good-night! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hope you have a great visit with your mom!
Your tomatoes look wonderful.

Wow, love those tomatoes! So pretty. Ours were quite unimpressive this year, and we have a growing season of about two minutes. So you could put our entire year's harvest into a good sized coffee cup. Sigh.

Delicious! You have such a wonderful harvest.

Nice to see the critters out and about, too.

Canadian squirrels are much nicer looking that the ones in Oregon. Especially when they can't get at your veggies :)
