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.
