The rays of sunshine are no longer as direct, giving the greened-up hay fields and lawns that unique glow that only happens in the spring and fall. Cool mornings, leaves changing color, sweet corn is over and the first broccoli picked: yes, Fall is here! The Lord has blessed us with much needed rain over the past several weeks for which we are very grateful. Being too busy with other things means there are more weeds in the broccoli field than should be there, but the crop looks pretty good. The wonder of the seasons always amazes me. The sweet corn, tomatoes, and other crops that love the heat of summer wither and die as fall approaches, but the broccoli, romanesco, cauliflower, brussels sprouts and cabbage flourish in the cooler weather. So with the season, our diet must change too. The yellow of corn, the red of tomatoes, the green of beans on the table is replaced by the green of broccoli and the orange and yellow of winter squash. What wonderful bounty and diversity we enjoy! God is truly good to us.
I have added a few pictures of some of the sights and activities of the last few months. Enjoy!
