Harvest Season

It's a rainy day here in NE Indiana, but harvest season is in full swing. With the wind shaking leaves off the trees and little spits of rain falling from the sky, I thought it a perfect time to take a walk around Coffeetree Bottoms. Following are some images I captured...a bit of homage to the end of summer, gratefulness for a most perfect growing season and a welcome to autumn.

Anasazi Flour Corn...
Second harvest of gourds and squashes curing...

Valencia Onions curing...

Seeds drying - Marigolds, Zinnias, Mexican Sunflowers & Bee Balm...

One day old harvested soybean field in the valley behind Coffeetree Bottoms...

Garden...

Apple Gourds with vines starting to die...

Mortgage Lifter Tomatoes trying very hard to ripen...

Stairs down to the magical Coffeetree Bottoms Creek...

And one final thought for this Wednesday morning....

"...and there is reward for life in water and field." - Paul Hogan
