We try ti eat well thru out the year, winter store’s play a big part in that.

Lets back up to the Apple Blossom. The unique part i wanted to point out is that the tree even put out a blossom? I took this picture Yesterday; after we’ve already had 4-5 hard frost. I’ve never seen anything like that, my wife found it while picking the remaining fruit and pointed it out.

Maybe it’s the Boron? A story for later.

Beet root’s are on the barn floor for a couple days before cold storage. Tomorrow i’d like to get the Potato’s in there as well.

I’ve always enjoyed @heirloomgal’s attention to detail in her photo shoot’s and how she even keeps color groupings together and in the right place. well; in trying to emulate her, the only other red thing i had to go with the beet’s is this piece of moose backstrap. Hey, i’ve seen stranger stuff on here. It is “harvest season” which to us means one thing.

These are big animals; that strap was 10 inches wide and 4 feet long. Think about that for a minute, 4 ft. Of T-bone, Ribeye etc.😋
Did you hunt that moose!?

As quick as it came; it’s leaving😕; as long as the temps stay 40/20 i’ll keep the Toyo on. Below that i’m just burning heating oil. The sun is a big factor as well and it looks pretty good in the foreseeable future.
Theres still 17 tomatos and a dozen cukes on the vines and id like them to finish up before i shut it down. The Rosemary was hung to dry, leaving a couple nice stalks of Celery in that bed.

Something to stare at on my tablet; till spring! Even with “2nd degree frost burns” the Calendula is still trying to look her best! I doubt the little cuke behind the flower will make fruit in the remaining time!

Once sorted, i’ll still have 3 times as many Parsnip seeds as i’ll need. These; my first attempt at saving Parsnip are from two volunteers.

This is the most ready for winter ive been, not excited just ready.

Today these last Cukes, a large head of Celery and the remaining stalk of Celebrity tomato’s were brought in; the greenhouse was pressure washed and the heat turned off.
Then i hopped on the rider and bagged some leaves. After a winters worth of rabbit poop and kitchen scraps I’ll stir it back to life in the spring and the whole cycle will repeat itself.

Thank you Lord, once those 5-7 gallons of Crab apples are sauced and canned and the meat put up, we’ll be done done!

i completely understand, but it is still early enough in the fall for us here that i'm not exhausted at the thought of all i still need to get done to wind down the season.

I bet those apples sauced taste mighty good.
