September is here...

We're still in the summer mode here-although it is September and we have started school. :)
Brad grew the Moon and Stars Watermelon (Baker Creek Seeds) (although this one has sun scald. :(
Along with his gardening, Brad is building a big shed

Bri has been busy harvesting her herbs-here's some lavender
It's been extremely dry here, and our trees are starting to drop their leaves

Chippy and Bingley are as cute as ever! :)
We're still getting tomatoes and peppers
I just picked the last of the green beans, and we dug some potatoes (they're yummy!)

I love these Dragon's Tongue beans (also from Baker Creek)

The butterflies and birds are here in abundance because we've been watering
and our flowers are green (unfortunately the bad insects are attracted here too)

Bri made us watermelon ice cream--it was good!
The days are mercifully cooler...Bingley is back to laying in the sun :)
We put up and tried out our new tent
 (we had to get a bigger one because Brad was too long for the old one)
(I"m supervising-along with Chippy) lol
Muffy was the first one in!
The pets loved it
We had fun sleeping in it--it's huge!
What are you up to so far in September?

"By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer."
- Helen Hunt Jackson, September, 1830-1885
