Just a few thoughts…the garlic is planted and mulched.
This native Zinnia grandiflora is continuing to bloom in the gardens, however, in the seed field the crop of this plant is pretty much finished. Chris harvested the seed this past week.
The last dehydrator full of black cherry tomatoes was filled and dried. They are now stored in glass jars for winter cooking events.
The sharp-shinned hawk is making herself at home. She is a frequent visitor, often hunting a ring-necked dove for her meal of the day. Since those doves are invasive and not very good community members to the rest of the wild bird community here, we are happy enough that the hawk has a taste for them. It helps to manage an over-population situation.
The autumn colors right now in Canon City are just gorgeous! Happy Trails.
