Fall is in the air!

The temps have been much cooler the last few mornings and evenings. It feels so nice to walk out on the porch in the morning. Think it's time to start to have coffee every morning out in the hide-away. It will be nice to sip coffee and look at the plants and smell the aromas of fall. :)

The yellow squash are beginning to put on some fruit. I got one this afternoon and there's another almost large enough to pull. I saw several more on the vines so it won't be long we'll be having fresh squash again.

The zucchini plants are healthy but haven't started blooming yet. I hope the frost will hold off until we can gather some zukes too.

The green beans aren't looking very healthy. Neither are the cucumbers. I don't think the seed for cucumbers were viable this year. We're not the only ones having troubles with growing cucumbers this summer.

The Taladega tomato plants are loaded. Unfortunately we only have two plants. There should be enough to have tomato sandwiches until frost. Yummy. The Marianna's Conflict have several tomatoes on them. We pulled a ripe one and made sandwiches.

The birds are growing. We still have to make a pen for the young guineas. Or we may just move the game hen and Easter Egger roo into the large pen and put the guineas into their pen. At least for a while.

We need to go rabbit shopping. I have to call Mr. Irons to see if he has any breeder rabbits he would like to sell. If we are going to put any young rabbits in the freezer we need to get busy. It will soon be chilly for butchering outside and I'm not going to butcher rabbits in my kitchen. OHHH YUCKY...

As I said nothing much is happening around Hunny Bunny Haven at this time. We will get busier in the next couple of weeks but until then...I thank you for dropping by and hope you all will come back soon.
