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.

The only thing left standing are the Mexican sunflowers and a few stray blooms on the butterfly bushes. I only learned that I'm supposed to cut them back to the ground in late fall. After they die back. That would explain why they always split and the older branches die off. Temp's are still getting in the low 80s most days. No frost yet. A and no rain. It's getting dangerously dry for fall. Being surrounded by over forty acres of woods makes it dangerous.

It sounds like you have houses in both places.  Is that correct.

I've always pictured you having a house in only one of the places.

I don't know if the bunny will survive the winter, and I don't think I want to take care of it, so I will try to give it to someone.  

A few days ago, I saw the mailman checking it out.  He was intrigued at how tame it was.  I ask him if he wanted it, but he didn't.

The black bunny is still here.  Up until a week ago, all I saw it eating were the composting pears, but the last week, I've seen him eating some weeds also.  There are some low, ground-cover type weeds with very small leaves that the bunny seems to like.
