Today has been gorgeous. True fall weather after some pretty significant heat. What better day to dig potatoes? I have already dug the bed with the All Blues and Yukon Golds. Today was the day for the Kennebecs.
When the kids got tired of digging, they started searching for worms, grubs and bugs. It became a game of naming them and then feeding them to the chickens. The chickens were very appreciative. They got moved into the garden a few days ago and have been happily weeding, turning the soil and fertilizing for me.
After the potatoes were dug we moved on to the tomatoes. J's son N started eating them like an apple. When we got to the peppers, they were all excited. D, from up the street said, "I love jalapenos" and proceeded to eat one right in the garden. N, Morgan and Noah decided that sounded like a great idea and did the same. Many glasses of milk later, they decided that it was probably not the best idea.
They were all thoroughly exhausted and napping on the patio. I think I may go do the same thing. Enjoy this wonderful weather!
