Fall is coming

The Farmer was a little sad today.
While surveying the garden he noticed that not much remained.

The manure pile has been distributed down the garden.

The sweet million tomatoes are in full swing.
As are the beef stake

The egg plant are ready to pick

The peppers are looking good.

The sweet chestnut burs are swelling nicely.

The chestnuts are a sure sign that the season is about to change.
The farmer and his wife have been harvesting them for years.
Its a nasty job back breaking usually raining and the burs...
Those needles can poke through a leather glove.
The farmer found last year that rubber exam gloves worked well.
The rubber gives just enough to not allow the spines to poke through.

Any way The Farmer feels fall in the air so get ready for the colours.
