Still, Saturday is the autumn equinox, and the garden is gently reminding me that this is okay. There are many lovely things about fall. The blueberry leaves turn pretty colors. I have three little winter squashes to make into ravioli or soup or pies, and the farmers markets and produce stores have dozens more varieties.
|Blueberry, unknown variety. Gift from a neighbor. Produced a couple handfuls of tiny but sweet berries.|
|Red Kuri winter squash. Japanese Heirloom. Produced two hand-sized squash.|
Happy Fall, everyone.
|Dandelion at the edge of the berry patch.|
|Potimarron winter squash. French heirloom. Produced one small squash. |
(potiron = pumpkin, marron = chestnut, potimarron = chestnut-flavored pumpkin)
|Raspberry ("Amity," I think). Produced a handful of berries in spring. |
|Blackberry, "Black Satin Thornless." Produced several handfuls of excellent berries.|
