The trailer is packed, and I'm ready to leave--this time, I'm off to the Bare Bones Endurance Ride, which is a few hours from home.
(Technically, ridecamp is only a bit more than 100 miles away, but I've got to cross 2 major cities and 1 minor city to get there, so time is more relevant than distance when considering how far from home it is for me...)
Before leaving, I wander around the yard with the camera. I try to do that every month or so, but apparently I haven't actually taken the camera out to document the yard since June!
It's difficult to believe that winter is approaching, because it seems like summer just arrived.
Apples are ripening on the trees in the orchard, a sure sign of Fall.
Also in the orchard:
Down in the lower garden, some of the blueberry plants are still producing.
Chicken Twelve got them all!
Here are some moderate-looking zucchini. One would hardly expect them of trying to engineer world domination, right?
Pickles isn't frightened by beans, not even big beans.
Life is good!
