Happy Fall!

September 21, 2015

There are still tons of apples on the tree at the pond. Bob is using the fruit picker pole to snag the highest apples and those hanging over the pond. I have two huge bags of apples waiting for me to cook down for applesauce. I will make another apple crisp, too.

The market lambs are growing like crazy. You would never know it's fall. Our pastures are as green as Ireland.

Plop. Another apple hits the pond. The snapping turtles will enjoy them later.

Bob feeds the lambs at dusk. They are five months old and weigh 120 pounds or more. That is good daily gain.

Lots of green grass for our ewes in the pasture.

Green as Ireland and Dr. Bob's overalls, yo! Thanks for the Autumn reminders. 'Only sign of the seasons on our South Florida acre is the grape vine's losing its leaves.
