We had so much fun this first weekend of Autumn. A bunch of friends came out for the weekend. The weather was gorgeous and the leaves are just starting to turn. We sat by a bonfire, played whiffle ball, ate delicious potato leek chowder, and visited the corn maze down at Randall’s Farm.
Here I am in the corn maze:
Luke wished our corn grew this well:

Throughout the maze there were 10 trivia questions.

Sarah lead us safely through the maze:
Can’t wait to bring the baby next year!
Memorial weekend was gorgeous and we were lucky to have friends come spend some time with us on the farm. It has been sunny with highs in the upper 80′s. As with everything this year, many of our perennial flowers are blooming early. I wanted to document these blooms so I can come back to this page next year and see how it compares.
Friends in the garden:
As I said yesterday, our vegetable garden is about half way planted out. The herb spiral is planted, as are the potatoes, garlic, onion sets, lettuce, strawberries, corn, tomatoes, pepper, swiss chard, kale, cabbage, radish, celery, brussel sprouts, jerusalem artichokes, and sugar snap peas. We still need to plant our beans and gourds.
This is an asparagus crown we planted a few weeks ago. We won’t be able to eat any for a few years.
The rhubarb is doing great. It made a delicious strawberry rhubarb pie and there is still more to pick. I just planted two more rhubarb plants so we will always have enough for many pies.
This is swiss chard that over wintered. Right next to it is more swiss chard that we started from seed this spring.
