We've had a taste of Fall, but not too much this week! Here are some pictures from around our yard showing signs of summer still hanging on.
A farmer left his tractor in the field beside our house over night. He parked it in such a way that it looked like it was on display. The farmers often leave their equipment parked near our house, I think for safety reasons.
Several watermelon vines came up in our compost/lasagna bed. There is no way the watermelons will ripen before frost. During the last few days the vines have started dying. Its just not the right time of year for watermelons to thrive.
This baby watermelon is resting on a coffee filter. I have been putting household waste such as potato peelings, banana peels, used coffee grinds with the filter, used tea bags, etc. on the bed. Next spring I plan to plant vegetables in it.

Morning Glories are blooming on my clothesline trellis. They are also growing everywhere around here, especially on ditch banks and on corn that hasn't been harvested yet.
Fall is such a beautiful time of year around here, but the really cool weather doesn't usually show up until November. The temperature tomorrow is supposed to hit 90! Even so, the humidity is low, so its not too uncomfortable.
