What A Glorious Autumn
I know I say this at this time every year, but I just
love the autumn light – the glow that it gives to all the
gardens, weedy ones included. It isn’t just the foliage
that glows, but the grasses, the heavy dew or frost on
the grass, the way the mist rises off the rocks, streams
and lakes as the morning
sun hits the surfaces and
they warm. Every morning when I go out to the
barn for morning chores
I just marvel at the light,
grateful that I live in one
of the most beautiful
with Allison
places. This morning the
full moon was captured
between the forks of the dead white birch. The moon
was still brightly lit, and it was just gorgeous. It is an
image I will carry with me for days.
Life at the farm is changing with the seasons.
Chores are being done earlier while it is still somewhat light. The donkeys are going for walks in the
orchard to give them some remaining green grass.
The kiwis are ripening, and soon buckets of them
will be on the cooking island waiting to go into the
dehydrator. The quince that finish off the fruit season
are days away from being harvested.
In the veggie garden, produce is still coming in
for dinner every night. I have the most amazing crop
of cabbage worms that I have ever grown. Yes, the
butterflies are beautiful, floating gracefully above the
garden – but oh, dear, the havoc that the caterpillars
are creating is quite damaging to say the least. All
the broccoli is being soaked before cooking. For some
reason my husband is not enjoying the added protein
with his vegetables. I am still harvesting beets, carrots,
kale, and chard. The Brussels sprouts that I thought
would never make sprouts are actually going to have
a crop. They won’t be huge, but they will be yummy.
And, drum roll please... I finally got the timing right
for a second crop of peas, and we are now enjoying
end of the season peas for a while. Yay!
I have – probably for the first time ever – gotten
my bulb order in before all the bulbs I wanted sold
out. Yes, after 40 years of gardening, I am slowly starting to get things right. Of
course, I will still have to
get them planted before
the snow flies, but I am
getting there.
I have decided to
completely rearrange
my flower gardens next
spring. The weeds have
gotten totally our of
hand, and the beds have been flattened by the guinea
hens and the chickens. It looks like a game of football
has been played in it. Dog toys have gone in there
numerous times. So, I have a huge project ahead of
me in the next couple of years: fencing, weeding,
moving plants around, building a Gambian wall on
the north side of the vegetable garden. There are oh
so many projects, all interconnected. I will have quite
a mess happening, but I love messes, especially when
the final product is so much better. At least that is the
plan. I have all winter to work out that plan so I don’t
work in circles.
The nut trees are looking good. Some I lost, like the
hardy almonds, and they won’t be replaced. Two of
the sweet chestnuts didn’t make it. I am disappointed
with the nut trees that I got from Stark nursery this
last spring, so I will be looking for another source of
nut tree seedlings. I miss the old Miller nursery. The
hunt is on for new suppliers.
Well, the temperature is up to 45 now, so out into
the garden I go. Happy gardening.

The Keene Public Library is celebrating Teen Read
Week through October 18th, with events and programs aimed at encouraging area teens to read for the
fun of it. The theme, Turn Dreams into Reality, dares
teens to read for fun and for achievement.
Teen Read Week is a time to celebrate reading for
fun and encourage teens to take advantage of reading
in all its forms and become regular library users.
According to Gail Zachariah, head of Youth and
Community Services, strong reading skills translate
into better performance at school and better prepared-
ness for careers.
Zachariah hopes to show parents and other community members what the library can offer by hosting special programs and events during the week. A
special event is planned each day. Teens can drop in
after school any day of the week for craft and other
activities. Details are listed on the library’s Web site
Teen Read Week is held annually during the third
week of October.
