Caught a 'possum (cage) yesterday, baited with persimmons. Released him down the road a couple of miles.

I envy your greenhouse, Daniel. Although, along with golfing, I like to take a winter break from gardening. That's why I never had a greenhouse. Interesting looking apple.

My rain gauge totaled 2" of rain the past 3 days, with more forecast for tonight. Temps are in the 70's day time, low 60's at night--above average. No cold temperatures are predicted for the next 10 days. Nice.

Beautiful home & grounds Daniel.

Our temps are down but the big thing here is the smoke has finally cleared. Much more pleasant to say the least!

No pictures this year with being evacuated & losing much of the garden/greenhouse.

I'm enjoying the pictures you guys have posted.  Daniel, I think those ducks would be great fun to watch.

How low are everyones temperatures now?

Randy, I used to see an owl once in a while when I lived in a small community.  Skunks too.

Thanks Patricia!

Randy I like fruit smoothies but haven't made any in a few years.  Too much sugar, even if natural.  I did slice collards into thin strips and stir fry, that was decent.  I think I'm just not a greens guy.

We are due for more rain too, this weekend.  I"m ready.  Voles got some of my potatoes this summer.  I'd look and think, nice potato, then see the other side was half eaten.  Must be some big moles now in the neighborhood.

A view of the house and some trees. I enjoy the mature evergreen.  Those were the main trees when we bought the place. Bottom is a red flesh apple picked yesterday. Didn't look ripe on the outside. These are marketed as "Hidden Rose" but the original name was "Airlie Red Flesh", originated in Western Oregon in the '60s. but never became popular. I think the flavor and texture are delightful.

I can't eat raw kale. Boiled is an improvement, but still, not all that good. I've done kale chips, too. Not a big fan. And never a smoothie. I hate smoothies!

Chard is my fave, collards a close second.

Good photos, Daniel. I'd love to visit your place. Too bad we live so far apart.

After a month of absolutely no rain, we've had 3 consecutive mornings of a half inch each day. NOW I can dig my sweet potatoes. Hopefully the voles haven't done too much damage.

Such great pictures guys!

After looking at Randy's pics, I went out and took a few of  my own.  It's almost like we are just down the road, maybe :-)

Spud, that sounds like winter to me!

Patricia, thanks.  I should try that with collard greens.  We did find that if they are boiled a few minutes before using, they lose the bitter taste.

Temperature here got down to 27 F this morning.

Thanks Daniel. I wish I had access to try duck eggs.

I have found frozen chopped kale added to my soups & stews tastes really good.
