There have already been so many special moments for us this fall.
As of October 1st, T, my brother and I are owners of this lovely piece of property:
We were able to get up to the cabin one last time with MoMo and Papa before the boats came out of the water. The weekend was a gem. I love sharing moments like this with my growing Bears:
We've harvested most of our garden to beat the frosty nighttime temperatures. Our potatoes plants were our favorite this year:
From one sprouting spring potato, we ended up with 6 plants and 2 baskets of potatoes!
Cuttings from our window box vines have made a great centerpiece in the dining room,
as have the flowers from my overgrown oregano:
Our tomatoes didn't quite get enough sun this year to make red tomatoes, but after a week by the windowsill, several of our heirlooms turned lovely autumn shades:
We tried tomatillos for the first time this year and raised a HUGE plant! Next year, I'll give it even more sun to ensure a bumper crop. The tomatillos are fun for the kids. The flowers and budding fruits are gorgeous on the vines.
Finally, we're getting ready for a family wedding next weekend. All the Bears will be in the wedding. These two look ready, don't they?
