I've been a little tardy in updating the blog, but finally tonight downloaded photos. Things have been busy with the semester, and a short trip to Connecticut for work (which I was lucky enough to have Brandon come with me!). We finally hit fall about a week ago - the temperature dropped (though it's still pretty warm) and the leaves have started to fall. Amazingly we still haven't turned on the heating, last year I think we had to turn it on by the end of September - not bad!

The critters are all well, Miss Barkley has perked up with the cooler weather, showing her puppy side more often. We went apple picking a few weekends ago, which led to about 40 lbs of apples! I've been dehydrating and canning apple sauce and apple pie mix since - yum!

Brandon also finished his firepit! 

So we shared sausages and smores with friends! 

One wind storm and suddenly it is fall! This time of year is treacherous with two's hard to tell where the poop is around all the leaves.....

Brandon's new toy! Cleaned up the yard in a few hours, rather than a few days like usual! 

Barkley getting to the last of the long grass at the back of the Blueberry patch. 

Tomatoes still going strong. Despite some neglect, the garden has been great this year. So far we've frozen a ton of zucchini, canned 8 jars of chopped tomatoes, frozen 6 jars of pesto and frozen 3 meals of squash soup. Not bad! 

The last of the squash. These are two small to eat!
