First of October and for the first time in years, I am finished harvest with the machinery all put away for winter. Having finally giving up on harvesting flax makes a difference. Notice I said harvesting, not growing. It was never a problem to grow a crop of flax but at least half the time it was a major challenge and sometimes impossible to harvest. I'll miss it in the crop rotation but I won't miss the grief and stress of trying to harvest it.
So time for a scenic drive on the trike with a view from about 90 feet above. We have had a good run of fall colours here this year but its coming to an end. High winds one day and now rain is making the trees look a little bare.
