September first has arrived, and I’m quite happy to see the calendar drawing closer to fall. Summer isn’t completely ready to give up yet. My tomatoes are finally getting ripe.
After tending green beans all summer through the heat and drought and not getting a single bean, I have tons of them on the plants now.
Luckily, my boy and nephews like to eat them raw. Makes it a lot easier. I just have to pick them. It’s time for me to pick apples according to Mushu.
Several apples have fallen on the ground, and my yard is starting to smell like apple cider vinegar.
The garlic chives are blooming like crazy.
They are quite popular with the bees.
Ironically, my yard has the most green it’s had since about April. Of course, this is as the plum tree is showing obvious signs of fall.
Another sign of fall is what looks like a strange snowfall in my yard. It’s actually goose feathers. They are molting.
What a weird year this has been.
