Congratulations on the acquisition of lots of brown gold Daniel.

Despite frequent crop failures, we know the old adage of "nothing ventured, nothing gained". I don't get overly discouraged. And living through winter isn't so bad, either. It gives me (and garden) a chance to rest and re-invigorate. Same is true with my golfing. A break in the action is a good thing.

Don, I am sorry to learn of your apple tree going down. Those late autumn snow storms take down a lot of strong trees. I've lost several, i.e. Washington Hawthorn and an apple.

Don, Daniel, and Randy, your crops and trees sound especially delightful now, as the weather makes its change from autumn into winter temperatures. I have Concord grape juice, about 20 quarts, in my freezer and given to family and friends. I went hunting for some parsley  a few days ago and found nothing good enough to eat. My dried parsley taste fresh in cups of chicken stock. 

The neighbors all have put their gardens to bed and shared from their abundance with me. 

I have a little herb garden in my dining room window that looks healthy and lush. I use them as fast as they grow. I'll get some new starts going so that I can have more.

Getting the garden settled in for the winter: rototilled about half and spread pine needles over it. It needs to be acidified annually.
I'm still harvesting tomatoes and carrots. New kale and collard leaves are coming out after caterpillars devoured the plants.
I'd give my garden a C grade for the year. Many things didn't germinate--beets, parsnips, spinach--and others just didn't produce, like cauliflower. I'm a little disappointed with Brussels sprouts, too.

Oh well. Like the typical farmer, "wait'l next year".

Ouch, Don. I know the feeling. My cherry tree split a few years back. I've never planted another one because I hated pitting the fruit.

Don, odd to see the snow when we are still getting temps in the low eighties. That doesn't mean we can't do a complete turn around and have a snow before the week is over.

Thanks, Daniel.  Good thoughts.  Not sure why I chose a Red Delicious in the first place.  I bought it on a whim, I guess, while visiting an orchard in South Hero on Lake Champlain.  The rooted portion of the tree will be an obstacle, unless I can get a backhoe up here.

I would be sad as well Don.

A pity, Don!
