I was going to write a post telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth about my silly little garden and all of it’s woes and calamities. But to be honest–I’m just so happy to have these pretty little Sun Sugar tomatoes fresh from…well…what’s left of my garden, that I haven’t got a whiney thought left in me.
Instead, I have a whole bucket full of goodness to gobble up and it’s a scrumptious distraction.
On the heels of the post about how “Autumn is most certainly coming now, bla-bla,” I have to say…it seems to me like only part of our yard is catching on. The pumpkins are doing their best to look all nice and Autumy. Two points for them.
The choke cherries–if that’s what they are–look ready to feed the birds till December. Good job choke cherries.
And our wood pile is set to “extra dry” in anticipation of cooler things to come. Way to go wood pile.
But I ask you…
What is Autumn-ish about a rose bush that’s still blooming all over the place?
Down rose bush, down.
And doesn’t parsley know that when you pick every last bit of it–it’s not suppose to…
come back again?
Enough already, parsley.
And why is it that now, in mid October we’re finally–FINALLY–getting a few piles of tomatoes? Ok, that’s not so bad, but still…
Why won’t the seasons behave like they’re suppose to?!
I sent Miss Chompy into the house with the last Fall picking of our sweet little berries. But –she and her imaginary friends had a tea party and somehow…somehow…they were all gobbled up. I think she said something about a wolf.
Moral of the story:
Be extra careful who you trust with the berry basket
You’ll be having canned peaches for dessert tonight.
Ooohh–I’ve found a new love. No, no…I didn’t pick these pretty things before they were ripe. These are called Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes and they are sooo amazing. They’re smaller than regular cherry tomatoes and so sweet that it’s easy to pick a handful and eat them all before you get in the house.
They were slow in coming this year so to get a whole bowlful in one picking is quite a feat.
