Autumn a Type of Contentment—-Sunday, September 17, 2017

We’ve had rain…the days damp and the mornings with a chill

The days warm up nicely.

The pinto bean harvest came to a screeching halt—the bean puller broke…

Then as it got fixed…

The rains came.  Which means Terry will have to go out and lift all the plants up out of the soil, (rains smashes plants) before he can combine the two fields—there is still one to pull and let dry and then combine.

I’ve been canning…pineapple candy peppers and



Plus we’ve turned off water to the place.  Irrigation is done for the year.  The only thing left now will be picking up the syphon tubes and flushing out the ditches.

Fall galloped in…complete with wild geese flying over us in the wind!

  1. Gorgeous photos! Wish I was there to help you do some canning ~ then I could learn more . Sounds yummy! I picked about 12 lbs of tomatoes today – was in the mood for sauce. Don’t know if I’ll can it or freeze it. Fall is just so… comforting. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. I have this feeling that fall is just going to wiggle her fingers at us and move on quickly. Darn that old machine having the audacity to break down just when you need it. And now to get it all ready for winter. We had rain too and were so happy to see it help put the forest fires down a bit. We certainly needed it.
