    And again I am jealous. Look at that bounty! Those tomatoes are gorgeous :) And those leaves…I am eagerly awaiting the color change here.

  2. Gorgeous photos of all your hard work. I’m jealous of your pumpkins. Looks like you’ll be busy for awhile!

    You must not be terribly far from the Matron or in a similar climate! I took some photos of yellow leaves today, for a similar blog post. Great minds. . .

  4. Great stuff :) I love this time of year. The busy-ness of it keeps me from thinking of what’s to come (I hate,hate,hate cold weather)
