Things are really winding down in our backyard. The grass is hibernating (dead and yellow), the raised beds are empty with the occasional weed or lettuce gone to seed. We didn’t plant pumpkins this year (see ours last year) and I’m regretting it badly now (I just never got around to it).
BUT this morning my sweet girl and I harvested nearly 2.5 pounds of cherry tomatoes. They are every size possible, down to the itsy bitsy. My kids will eat this raw all day long, so instead of doing another batch of roasted marinara sauce, I think we’ll just enjoy these raw in salads and as snacks.
I find it slightly magical the way cherry tomatoes so naturally cascade in a rainbow.
And although all my plants have fallen over and they are on the ground, they still seem to be thriving – by the grace of something other greater than myself, since I haven’t been paying them much attention. Lots of green ones left, so we’ll have another couple weeks of harvests, I think.
We probably picked 2.5 pounds after you figure all the ones we ate while picking.
AND we are now getting TWO green eggs a day (for a total of 6-7 a day) so now we know all our baby chickens are now laying! So excited. Aren’t they glorious? We got these babies back in March, you can read more about there here.
So that’s what’s happening in my backyard. Humor me and tell me what’s happening in yours. . . .
