My silence is not due to Rhinebeck envy (although I am a little envious). I've heard from a few friends and it sounds like they had a wonderful time...a fleecy, fun and good friends kinda time.
My silence is due to the beauty of our fall. Tomatoes, beets and lettuce grow in the garden and the cooler night temperatures enhance the sweetness of the fruit. We could not ask for a more abundant, colorful or elegant fall. I know the weather will change, but I revel in its warmth, and enjoy the slow turning of seasons. And then there is the chickens...10 eggs a day (15 chickens). The grrls love the fresh lettuce and beet greens we share.
You will not find my Ten on Tuesday list, but we did buy a small freezer and it's nearly full of meats, veggies from our garden, and Vicki's fabulous tomato sauce. We made another batch (our last?) on Sunday.
My camera has been on the kitchen table for weeks, but it is now back in my handbag. Fall pictures will be here soon (and maybe knitting!).
