Spectacular harvest party

By Penny Stine

Carol Zadrozny with Z's Orchard hosted a harvest celebration at the orchard the other day and very kindly invited my family. I'm posting a few pics because it was just too pretty not to share... 

These great fall decorations almost make me not sad that summer is over.

 

The fall decorations and flowers were awesome. Almost enough to make me happy that summer was over.. 

Was that what the first Thanksgiving was like? Well, except for the aluminum dishes, the plastic forks and the disposable cups, I'm sure it was just like this! 

I'd like to have a party in my garden celebrating the end of the season, but I don't think I could fit a table this big in amongst the tomatillos.

 

and I definitely couldn't fit a bluegrass band between the squash and the kale. 

Nonetheless, it was a fabulous way to say so long to the 2010 growing season. In my garden, I'm still babying the last few tomatoes, still picking the relentless tomatillos and planning on planting spinach in another couple of weeks.
