A Mountain Journey

I came to you through the mountains. I saw peaks robed with snow Every moment I saw a new vista. The clouds parted to reveal the sun. I approached your lake below the glacier. I saw a silver, mirrored surface. Soaring birds of prey searched for fish. As I watched them fly, I felt true freedom.

Cherries

Cherries

We're going to come close to our first frost tonight. I went to my garden to pick what I could. Now I've got about 45 cherry tomatoes, although some will be eaten tonight. (These are from a single plant (!) I picked two full size bell pepper when I thought I only had one. There's a lot out there still. Depending on how cold it gets, more or less will get ripe in the rest of the week. One tomato plant has about a dozen green tomatoes on it. It would be worth going out and trying to protect it a little better. I didn't realize how many cherry tomatoes I'd already picked. Their are plenty more that will ripen soon. Last year, the first frost didn't keep the remaining cherries from continuing to ripen so I'm hopeful.

The tomatoes are wild

The tomatoes are wild

I have a volunteer grape tomato this year. It start right under a regular tomato that was way too close. I transplanted it to an open area to give it a chance. With the recent rain, it's growing wild. It has dozens of tomatoes started and has spread past the bounds of its trellis. The regular tomatoes are doing ok, but they're ripening slowly. The grape tomatoes are going to overwhelm me soon enough. I've got some friends who might share them. I don't like food going to waste!

New Yorker

New Yorker

I got my second issue of New Yorker magazine this weekend. I really, really like it. It's like the only magazine I've ever had that I read cover to cover. They have lots of humor content and are written very well. Their online service is great too with items every day that don't get published in the paper copy.
