When I was done it was time to walk around and admire the fall day.
I found lots of evidence that the deer are finding my yard again. I stopped my Liquid Fence treatments in September so the deer are back. They are nibbling the ratty hosta leaves that will soon be mush when a hard frost hits.
I don't mind. It will fatten them up for my brother-in-law who is hunting on our property this fall. Haven't heard that he's gotten one yet. I just have to be sure to start the Liquid Fence at the first sign of spring next year to break them of their habit of visiting me.
Here are some of the flowers still in bloom.
The vegetable garden looks good cleaned up.
Garlic has been planted here.
Some of what's growing: carrots,
lettuce, bok choy and spinach,
and more bok choy.
In cleaning up I found this cucumber and this handful of green beans.
I harvested these young bok choy for a soup for dinner.
I didn't have the heart to pull these marigolds still blooming profusely.
The blueberry bushes have their fall colors showing.
Beautiful time of year!
