Week 40 - A Week in Fall

We've just finished off a pretty productive week around here. Perhaps it had to do with cooler temperatures or the fact that I had five days off in a row from work - regardless, I'll take it. Here's some of what we accomplished....

The fall decorations are up and a few new projects were completed too - like the colorful leaves above.

The cooler weather garden is nearly finished. Grace and I worked each morning and afternoon adding compost, sowing seeds, watering, etc. In the photo above she's sowing the peas around the bamboo trellis we made.

While gardening, Grace became the backyard lizard charmer. Two small lizards have made their home amongst our eggplants and Grace got each of them to climb upon her arm. To say she was excited is an understatement.

Thirty five pounds of apples were made into applesauce. I must say that all the peeling, coring and slicing was worth it - you just can't beat the taste of homemade.

And lastly, there was a fair amount of quilting done. Since I didn't take any pictures while sewing, I thought I'd share a photo of Grace surrounded by pumpkins instead - happy autumn everyone!
