We've all been busy lately, but let's check in here and chat a bit. Don't forget we all need to rest! Fall's time is almost up, but it's still warmer than usual here. I have been digging in the veggie garden lately and still have more. Dug up the roses and covered them with dirt. I have been canning a roast sauce and a ketchup, also a winter salad with mustard mayonnaise.
How have you all been?

Thanks for the new thread. Your leaf looks like a little boat. Nicholas is growing up! I'll have to check out your other pictures. Tell me about digging and burying the rose bushes. I have 3 rescued roses in pots which probably need to be protected some way for winter. They had been planted in the ground but were in serious trouble.

Fall is a busy time for everyone. We and our neighbors have been working together to accomplish some projects which are easier and faster with some extra hands and machinery. The weather has been mostly good, or at least good enough to allow much of the outside work to be done. All 3 families have a good supply of firewood. We have moved fences and started developing a new big garden in what used to be pasture. The fence still needs to be built after more rain to soften the ground enough to plow it. The plan is to get it plowed before winter, then plant a cover crop next spring, turn that under and maybe plant garlic in the fall. A deep rooted cover crop would bring up nutrients from beyond where most roots would go, and the green tops would provide nitrogen and a lot of organic matter.

In October helped my neighbor plant 400 pounds of garlic and 200 pounds of shallots. Planted my own garlic, made room for additional rhubarb plants and took some starts off my old ones. Then dug up and replanted part of the front flower bed. Quack grass plus 2 or 3 other invasive plants had invaded it to the point where that was the only way to get rid of most of it. I salvaged a lot of iris. What color? Light blue for sure, maybe others. Anyhow, it will look much nicer next summer.

And now I must turn my attention to preparations for Thanksgiving. Family will start arriving on Wednesday and stay though Sunday. Our big dinner will be on Friday.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
