|Yellow Summer Squash|
We planted the squash with the hope the weather would remain warm until we harvested the squash. So far we have been lucky
Okra Bloom and Pods- most of the okra came up in the garden from the compost and some was planted a few days after labor day.tomatoes came from a volunteer bush and the tomatoes in the pots were started at the beginning of September.
Pomegranate Bush is putting on fruit. We planted two bushes in the spring and the small fruit fell off. I was surprised to see the bushes putting on fruit in November. The fruit will take 5 to 6 months to ripen. Keeping my fingers crossed on having mature fruit.
The only sign of fall and winter is the sugar cane turning purple and new shoots appearing
Another sign of fall is having lots of shrimp in my freezer. Shrimping season started late September and ended the middle of October.

We are also lucky to have friends that like to hunt. I trade them shrimp for vension.
Chickens are growing but still slow in producing eggs
Turkeys need to grow a little more
Over all I have been pleased with what we have been able to produce and put in our freezer this month. I know the kids will be eating things that are fresh, organic, and great tasting.
