Speaking of blue, we are jumping up and down with excitement that our blueberry bushes are producing this year (we haven't had any berries at all the past two years). They are still a little rosy and holding on to a bit of tart and tang, but this cool weather should sweeten them up!
Speaking of berries, we found a few blackberries ripening...they have been hit hard with all the rain, so finding a few is pleasant. The ripe ones are still quite sour, but we are hoping the cold kisses a little sweetness into them too!
With winter feeling like it's around the corner, we are really happy that our wood stores are built up...but alas, we don't feel like we should stop chopping (with as wet a spring and summer we've had, we are wondering if winter will also be wet, chilly and bitter) so Johny is going to build two more racks, one in the left corner where you see a pile of logs, and the other at the other end of the racks near the stairs (on the far side where you see Johny, bent over). Bring it on, Mr. Winter, we're going to be ready!
I hope you don't tire of these mountain views, but on a day like today, I can't help but share...love this view (if you look at the picture of the cabin above, this view is seen when you are standing on the porch on the left side of the cabin just above the wood racks you see in the picture above).
I do hope you are enjoying your day as much as I am...in celebration of this fall like day, I am creating a marinade/sauce for grilling pork (if it's good I'll be sure to share the recipe) and we will be eating fresh green beans and potatoes (mashed) from our garden ...life is good!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
