End of Summer Break

Our summer break ended this morning. Julie returned to work and I returned to making breakfast and packing lunches.

On our last weekend we worked Friday and Saturday around home and agreed we would take Sunday as a play day.

Play turned out to be a lazy breakfast and doing nothing for most of the day. In the morning I told Julie about pole, bush and fava beans in the garden. We walked down to look only but she began picking tomatoes, peas, peppers and carrots. We unintentionally found some work for part of the day.

Garden harvest.
Morning's garden harvest. Sugar peas, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, two varieties of potatoes, summer and winter squash, Thai and bananna peppers, onions, cabbage, turnips, and orange and purple carrots.

Unknown critter.
I found this moth pupa while digging potatoes. The shell is hard and the tail (antennae?) is rigid and affixed to the back (or abdomen?). We kept it. Hopefully we'll see the adult emerge.

what a wonderful object the moth pupa is - it'll be wonderful if you're able to observe the adult as it emerges!

Yum, and lovely! I'm guessing we'll see some pix of the emerging critter, if we're lucky?
