It’s that time of year. When a person—particularly a gardener—feels the chill in the air or the rain on his/her skin and gets the urgent need to get the garden cleaned up. We have dug potatoes and carrots. They are now in the root cellar but it was very hot the day we dug the carrots and my fingers are crossed that they will keep.
Of course we had lots of help.
Yup, little Mr. Peanut follows us at every task we do and thinks he’s helping by attacking our hands and feet. He loves when I work in the garden. Aren’t I doing it just so he can chase my fingers?
I love my garden. I especially love the fresh produce. Some of the family was out yesterday to dig their produce and I made lunch for them. A big pot of soup with fresh vegetables. I shredded carrots so one little granddaughter wouldn’t recognize them. I added freshly dug potatoes. Of course I washed them and cut them up. I added green beans, and a bit of fresh dill. And from last year’s tomato crop, I added a container of frozen tomatoes. Yummy.
Yes, I love the garden but it’s a lot of work. I can’t say I will be sorry to see it go to bed for the winter.
