An early fall of dense snow overnight has taken my Red Delicious apple tree, planted as a whip in 1980.  Sad to see.  At age 36, it had been just coming into its own in shape and production. 

Our 20-year-old red oak, however, looks splendid.

Daniel, what's the name of the corn, that you said wasn't too sweet?

Randy, your raspberry wine sounds delicious.  When I win the lottery, I'll come visit you and maybe you'll give me a sip.

Thanks Daniel. I always love finding the gardening catalogs in the mail.

Okay, one more batch of red raspberry wine (making 8 total), and I'm done. Like your blackberry patch, Daniel, I'm starting a new r.r. area. It'll be difficult to uproot the old patch with all the runners they produce. Like strawberries, one needs to rotate beds every 5 years or so. In fact, the new rasp. patch is going where the old strawberry patch was.

Good looking food, Daniel. Surprised you still have "corn on the cob".

I'm preparing to till up my garden--at least half of it where nothing is growing. I really need to plow it to turn over soil 6" deep. It's rather compacted.

Spud, it was still 82° when I came home at eight pm. Tornado weather in ky. But with all the climate change any time of year is tornado weather. Unsettling.

Produce envy! That's funny Ruth.

My neighbor gave me some bodaceous corn this season. It's the second best corn I've ever eaten. My all time favorite was a small sweet corn my dad always raised called golden bantam cross. I haven't had it for years. Don't even know if it's available anymore.
It may have been the best sweet corn because it was most certainly the first fresh garden corn I ever remember eating. We had moved from the inner city of Chicago back to our extended family in ky. You couldn't get fresh anything where we came from :(

All of your produce looks great, Daniel. Presonally I can barely eat any of that stuff. The radishes upset my stomach, too spicy. Corn disagrees with my diabetes and IBS. I can eat small amounts of lettuce. Gee, you gave me produce envy.

Daniel and Spud, I enjoyed reading both your updates. I, too, didn't realize you owned two places, Daniel. It's sort of like me--a one acre house property where I live, and the farm which I own but don't work there much.
We did get a cold front that passed through bringing 0.3" of rain and temps in the upper 30's--close to a frost. It's now easier to dig sweet potatoes.
I made both salsa and tomato sauce yest. from my abundant supply of tomatoes and peppers and onion.
