The Fall Bounty

Fall is such an amazing time on the farm! All the pumpkins and gourds are coming ready, the winter squash and sweet potatoes are being harvested, all the other cool-weather crops are coming to a peak, the leaves are changing... It's definitely one of my favorite seasons!

Leola Produce Action - a stunning sight to see when it's full of Lancaster Counties bountiful harvest!

Lettuce, in my garden, that's done fabulously this year 
The early morning sun, as it rises on my Romaine and Red Leaf Lettuce

Rouge D'Hiver - a French heirloom veriety

We planted close to 6,000 heads of lettuce this year - 7 different types!

Kale is one of those vegetables that is simply packed with benificial vitemins and minerals.

Umm... Mommy and Daddy are training my taste-buds to like healthy food from a very early age!

Really? That looks good, too, like the rest of the produce in the garden.

Yea, I'm really glad my parents do gardening. It gives our family all sorts of opportunities to be together, enjoying God's creation, which we wouldn't have otherwise. It's a good life!
