Fall Garden

Not too bad for a poorly tended garden!
Nice vegetable dinner casserole.  And I thought even the zucchini was a bust this year.

Thai Basil in a pot.

Flowering radish and nasturtiums in the background.

Fall Calendula - October Birth Flower

Strawberry bed is working up a bumper crop of everbearings.
Touch of red in the patch.

Bees love the Borage flowers with the squash and sunflowers.

Nothing like sunny sunflowers.

Sun in a blue sky.
Pumpkins playing peek-a-boo.
Late pears are prolific.  Didn't even keep up with the early ones.

Whoa!  Gabe brought in quite the hitchhiker.  Anyone can I.D. that one?

September Sunday

Maybe the last hurrah of salmon season for us.  We went to early Sunday worship and teaching and took to the water for the rest of the day.
Lydia caught and reeled in the finest Coho Salmon yet on her self-made green hoochie lure with sparkly silver streamers.

Pleased Papa keeping us on course.

Gabe set up to bleed the salmon before putting it on ice.

Lydia caught the second Coho of the day from the bow, casting a green rotator.  She was thrilled to catch her first salmon and reel it in without losing it on her casting pole!
Snapshot at the end of the day.

High-five Lydia, the fisherwoman of the day!

Fisherman all around.

Victory walk - fish to gut and head home.
