The Garden Since the end of June
As far as I'm concerned, Autumn has not really arrived in Western Massachusetts. The calendar says so and the mornings have been quite cool but until we get a good frost, there is still some of summer's work going on. Even as we are beginning to watch the leaves turn to color.
Next weekend, I think it will feel much more like Autumn and we should be optimum leaf peeping weather. Hopefully with sunshine.
I attempt to catch up since the last time I posted here at the end of June.

There's still plenty of basil to make the last batch of pesto.
Quince jam? I'm not sure I want to tackle making jam. Perhaps when I turn sixty. ;-)
A few days ago, I brought my potted plants in. They'll get cut back but I want to see if I can keep them alive for the winter.
And here are the feet of your truly, with signature messiness.
