Fall and new developments

Our weather has been so screwy this year. It was cold most of the summer. Then the first day of fall hits and it's as warm as the first day of summer should have been. Go figure! Oh well, I'm enjoying the warm temps for as long as it lasts. It's been dry since the first of the month. The leaves are turning colors and starting to fall.

My forsythia bush is clearly confused. Do you see the yellow in the center of this picture? Those are flowers! It's not supposed to be blooming in September. It only blooms in the spring before the leaves come out.

Our tomatoes have been coming in like gangbusters. Here are some big yellow tomatoes I picked last week. These are either heirloom Pineapple Tomatoes or Big Rainbows---both are very sweet, and flavorful, low acid tomatoes. The ruler will give you an idea of how big these really are. Each of them must weigh at least a pound.

And some big news! We're having a four seasons room built by Champion! It's something hubby and I have wanted for a long time. Yesterday, they poured a foundation around our existing patio. Here's one of the workers pumping concrete into one part of the trench. Now to be patient until the walls and roof arrive and are installed. It should be done by the end of October. This will more than double the size of our family room and add some much needed living space to our home. I'm looking forward to sitting out there this winter watching it snow while I spin. Or inviting my knitting/spinning group over for a Fiber Frolic! The kitties aren't too happy about all changes right now but I think they'll be very happy to have all those windows to peer out this winter when it is too cold for them to go outside.
