bringing it in

Most of last week was spent hauling in whatever we could harvest from the garden. We've had several freezing and frigid days, and even a dusting of snow already!

Much of the corn was still immature (a bit too late planting that this year).

We found the very last raspberry.


Farmer baby was a very eager helper, pulling up carrots, crawling around inside the raised beds to find the hidden peppers, and overjoyed to hear "yes, pick it!" when she pointed to any still-green tomatoes (instead of hearing my usual "not that one, it's not ready yet").

Her little baby doll (which was actually my favorite baby doll when I was her age!) comes nearly everywhere with us.

And gets to sample all the garden goodness, too.

The dogs stopped by to play for a bit.  

The sun came out briefly and cast a beautiful glow on all our hard work.

We filled our baskets full.

And after such a busy time in the garden, we decided to take a rest by the sandbox.

Where even more treasures were discovered.

This is the time of year we fell in love with this place.


  1. Love how your sweet baboo is putting her treasure in her pocket!

  2. Crazy weather we've been having. She is too cute in her little farmer overalls! C helped this week put the tomatoes that got frozen in the trash bin. Quite the little helpers aren't they?
