Als ich wisse das Morgen der Erde enden wuerde, immernoch wurd ich mein Apfelbaum pflanzen.

Even if I knew the world would perish tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther

"Factory work's easier on the back, and I don't mind it, understand, but a man becomes what he does. Got to watch that. That's why I keep at farmin' although the crops haven't ever throve. It's the doin' that's important." Madison Wheeler in Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon

It's All Bliss

I spent last week enjoying one of my favorite places on earth, spending time with my favorite people.  I read almost all day and didn't feel one bit guilty.  I ate good seafood.  I inhaled the ocean air and tried to fill my soul with peace for the upcoming year.  It was bliss.

This week - I'm spending time at one of my favorite places on earth, with my favorite people.  There's a bit more work to do, but it's that satisfying, fill the freezer, organize the house, cross the last items off of the summer to do list, get ready for the frenetic fall kind of work.  Guess what?  It's still bliss.

It's all about the perspective my dear, all about the perspective.

I think the flowers are the best crop this year.

There were some monster potatoes.

The winter squash/pumpkin crop looks huge.

It's pretty much a jungle in the garden now - but not too many weeds or bugs.  I'll take it.

Oh man, this one hid - it was bigger than my forearm.  I'm gonna sneak this baby onto someone's porch!  Beware neighbors.

Can you see the fall crop of red raspberries - hoorary!

Finally, tomatoes.

The boy's lunch request.  Bliss on a plate.
