A cabbage head or two could be harvested also; they weight about five pounds each and are still growing. Garlic is shooting up. Red clover is beginning to turn our future corn patch from brown to vibrant green.
Not much else is green, however, and our attention is turned upward to trees of many types that have caught the hint that it's autumn! Morning temperatures have consistently been in the mid 30's F on our hill top, and sunny warm days to follow are excellent for creating anthocyanin in leaves, the pigment that gives them their flaming red-orange colors. If this weather pattern continues, we are in for a very colorful show by early November.
