Fall Hikes and Harvest

The kids have grown a bit camera-shy, but I managed to get a few shots of them over the course of the fall.

Sydney’s brugmansia (Angel’s Trumpet) prompted a number of questions from people who passed by the front yard.  Those flowers are seriously fragrant!

The persimmon trees Sydney planted behind our garage have shot up past the edge of our roof and have begun to produce many, many pounds of persimmons.

Nathaniel is holding one of Sydney’s Lincoln cushaw squash, of the variety that Abraham Lincoln’s father grew when their family lived in Kentucky.  We mostly see cushaws used as porch decorations, but we’ve learned they also make seriously smooth pumpkin-like pies!

And, in the midst of everything else, we did get out for a few hikes at Shaker Village.
