After such a dry summer and potato beetles by the hundreds, our harvest was nothing like previous years. But it will be more than enough for us for winter, and hopefully enough for spring planting (and we sold many pounds of new potatoes through the summer, too). We only grow three varieties: All Blues, Mountain Rose and Nicolas...and my favorite, the All Blue, did the poorest. But we are thankful for harvest we've stored away in the cellar.

I am *finally* just rows away from finishing F's Tiny Tea Leaves Sweater. This is mostly because I used my birthday weekend away to get some knitting done...when we weren't walking the streets of Portland, enjoying some delicious food, buying lots of fun fabric, or walking the shores of Saco Bay. It was my first weekend away from all of the kids! A very special way to celebrated my 36th birthday.
