October Already?

Fall is in full swing around here!  The days have been mild with highs in the 60-70’s.  We have seen a day or two in the low 80’s.  Sunday night we had a tenth of an inch of rain.  The weatherman is calling for a cold front to hit tonight and a chance of snow.  Yes, you read the S word!  At this point any type of moisture will be a blessing.

I see my garden plants are slowing down, but still producing delicious tomatoes.  If it freezes, my fresh tomato eating days are over for the year.

I hear an unhappy Fritz who is chained up.  She is chained up because I am not happy when she “plays” with the chickens and kittens.  She has lots of energy and goes looking for something to do.

J has been taking her with him more often.  I think he makes Fritz do a little running to burn off some of her puppy energy.

I like the feel of cool fall air when I walk the dogs.  The crisp mornings are refreshing. I also enjoy the birds and watching the sunrise.

J and his Dad got all the hay moved home last week.  We also had manure haulers in to distribute the manure pile on some farming ground.  J saved a few scoops of the good stuff for Miss B and I to use on next year’s garden.  

Last Saturday our anniversary window was installed!  I am working on a blog post for next week.  Wow, what a difference a bigger window can make.  

How are you experiencing fall?

    Oh my, dogs do like to “play”. I love the picture of the bird on the fence – very pretty!

  2. Hi, Robyn…I see you are experiencing Fall too, I love the cooler temps and the colors are changing rapidly. Sure could use some of that “manure” for my garden next year too. I am sure you are not ready to stop eating those fresh tomatoes, there is nothing better than that tomato off of the vine!! Enjoy October!!

    We’ve had a little Indian Summer with a couple of near 80 degree days and rain. Your front is headed this way I think which will bring us cooler weather and some frost this weekend.
    A good frost will hurry the fall color – it’s what I’m waiting for.

      Carletta, it was nice this morning and has gotten cloudier, windier and colder as the day progressed. Calling for lows in the upper 20’s tonight.
