Autumn...

Fall is slow in coming here this year. Most of the garden is confused with all the weather swings. The neighborhood trees are just starting to turn color.

My confused tomato, that had one tomato all summer, has recently put on a bunch of tomatoes. That's fine, I can make chow-chow with them.

The fig tree is producing a bumper crop.


The only things on schedule are the pomegranates.

One of the joys of living in a small town, my neighbors all know about the Angel debacle. They seem to think that my recovery will be sped up by bringing me home cooking. I may not know much but I know they are all way better cooks than I, so I'm accepting their tasty offerings with humble gratitude.

    1. LL,
      Planning to, just slow going... There is a lot of garden that needs tending and I'm frustrated that I can't do all the maintenance like I have been. May have to break down and hire some help til I can do.

  2. Nice on the neighborly neighbors.

    Our garden produced far less than usual this year. Freezes came at the wrong time as did heavy rains or dry spells. We got nothing off the plum, cherry or pear trees, but the apple trees produced well

      My neighbor are wonderful.

      Everyone here has had less tomatoes this summer. All the weather swings, and then the heat, I think.

  4. Hope you're better soon. Happy to hear the neighbors are keeping you fed. We got a bumper crop of figs too but the orchards here were bit hard by the weather.

      My BIL in Vancouver had a great garden this year, produced lots more than in prior years.

  5. How neat to be able to grow your own pomegranates. Didn't realize you have been ill. So glad you have door to door food delivery. Good neighbors are priceless.

      Pomegranates are an easy grower here, and the tree was loaded. I picked all but a few that I left for the birds. A friend is getting the pomegranates and has promised me several jars of jelly in return.

      Frustrating that I don't heal as quickly as I used to, but it's getting there.

      Figs I'm not a big fan of, but love pomegranates. Thanks.
