A week ago it was nearly 100° in Portland following a week of temperatures in the 90’s – finally!
Today – showers and a high of 67°.
There is every indication that Fall will be here – soon.
I’m not ready.
The garden is showing signs of slowing down. (Even though there are just shy of about bazillion green tomatoes yet on the vine.)
The babies are only a month from coming into lay!
Oh – you need to meet Cleo (she’s an Egyptian Fayoumi) – isn’t she pretty?
She’s the most unusual chicken! She sings like no other chick we’ve had – really quite melodious – but – she’s FAST – and fairly anti-social. She loves her adopted sisters, though, and wherever they go – she goes!
The big girls are starting their fall moult. There are quite a few nearly naked chickens running around here!
To be honest – I had hoped we’d get another month of summer. I mean, it only seems fair given how late it started and how cool it’s been. Right?
My tomatoes agree with me!
