Last Picked

Happy Friday! Well you made it another week. Good for me and you, eh? How did this week do ya? How did this month do ya for that matter?

It’s flown by on a breeze and I’m left wondering where it went and left looking at its back. Now here it is October and Fall is here for real- real.


The garden thing is officially done. Here you see the end of our labors.
The last picked. Aren’t these last pick tomatoes and peppers just beautiful? Sometimes those that are picked last can be the most special. The ones with the most promise. There’s no shame in being the last picked.


“…so the last shall be the first…”



Best,
Kwana

My Mother would always say, "It is not how you start, it is how you finish!" Look at those sweet little last picked gems. Thoughtful post, as always!

September flew by in the wink of an eye. Soon there will be snow on the ground here and Joan will fly away..... :( xoxo

New to the blog but I loved seeing your last picks. My mother had a vegetable garden and the older I get I'm wondering why I don't start one myself.

Jax Cassidy said...

I totally agree! Those are gorgeous. :)

Reminds me of my mom's garden. She has several red pepper plants and I swear they grow like weeds. It seems every other day I was picking peppers to bag to give away.

I feel you. Same loss of food here, and a place I really enjoy. Will do the herb thing until next year...and miss it!
