Autumn bounty

Autumn fruits are bountiful. Green beans are sufficiently plentiful to require frequent picking. Large orange Lakota squash, over two dozen Butternuts, and a few Sugar Dumplings, which pack robust flavor in their small size, await harvesting in our garden. Beets, carrots, kholrabi, and turnips promise variety that will last late into the season. Soon we’ll have collected enough ground cherries for a pie. Tiny pears from the decorative tree out front are feeding the squirrels and littering the driveway.

Fruits of Jay’s summer labors in the studio, and mine upstairs in my design studio, are also evident and will be on display later this fall. Expect to get a nostalgic look back at “Summer Trees, Days Gone By” Summer Trees (three panels), more fusing, and my first “nestaria.”
