Autumn is Just Around the Corner

It really does not feel like Summer is coming to an end. This morning, Jackie and I were exploring the estate and there is still a lot of activity.
The Cayenne peppers were harvested and placed in the dehydrator.

This is the end result of those particular peppers:

I want to have an actual pepper shape so the next batch will not be dried this much.

We were also happy to discover that we did not lose one of the five Butterfly plants.

It was just a little shy and took a little longer to show up to the party.

My other slow developing Butterfly plant is a beautiful orange colour.

A lot of my plants seem ready to call it a season, but there are still many that are as vibrant as ever.

We even found a few tomatoes.

..and let me tell you! They are sooooo goooooodddddd!!!!!

Many interesting insects are still out and about. I am happy to report that I have not seen any more of the red bug eating Lilies.

We also did a little shopping and found Jackie an interesting ID tag from AgilityQ

These are just a very select few pictures where I managed to photograph Jackie somewhat accurately.
She always knows when her photo is being taken and manages to look either suspicious or miserable.

I am off to the backyard to work on a few of my projects.
I am working on a pair of socks for a co worker who will be retiring soon,

and a pair of slippers for Hubs,

Have a good day everyone!
