Autumn Farm Scenes

Friday, the Mariners secured a spot in the post season for the first time since 2001.

It was great fun watching.  I had gone to the previous post season against the Yankees after 9/11.  It has been too long.

On Saturday morning, I thought the peacock looked dramatic on the hay barn roof.

The swimming pool kept leaking so now I am trying dew retting for the flax.

I have been drying herbs in the kitchen,

and in the living room.

The bull continues to look more and more bully.

We are feeding lots of apples to the animals.

On Sunday, we rooted the Seahawks to a win.

This morning the sunrise was gorgeous.

The fodder beets are huge.

And the pig butts are getting bigger.

Those are the autumn farm scenes from Schoonover Farm.

    I love the picture of the peacock on the barn roof! Does he go up there often?
    So – the fodder beets are quite different from “people beets”?? The color is fantastic!
    I’m glad the Mariners are doing well. It sounds like the Seahawks are doing pretty well too.
    I love the look of your herbs drying in their bunches on your walls – great decorations!
    I’ll be interested in how the dew retting works for the flax.
    Your bull is really getting a much more herky look!

      He doesn’t go there often. This is the first time I have seen him there. The fodder beets are tougher, less sweet and bigger than regular beets. They sure grow well though. The Mariners are looking good. The Seahawks have only won 1/2 of their games but are looking better. The drying herbs make it seem like a farmhouse in here. But now I need to take them down and package them. We shall see how the dew retting goes. I am sprinkling the flax now as the dew doesn’t seem to be providing enough moisture yet. Herky is a great work to describe Rory.
