Hay Bales, Harvest Moon and Sliced Tomatoes

Fall is everywhere--from golden wheat fields to acres of sugar beets ready for transportation to a local sugar refinery.  We traveled across North Dakota witnessing a glorious sunrise in the morning and the rising of the full, orange Harvest Moon, large on the horizon, at evening.  Large round bales of hay lay drying in fields and along the ditches by the road we travel.

Because it is a great year for tomatoes, we become quite creative to keep up with the abundance--sliced tomatoes, grilled tomatoes, and my sister Peggy's homemade tomato soup.  At their organic farm we ate fresh baked red potatoes and white Kennabeks.  A zucchini stir-fry with bacon and Parmesan cheesewas tasty on the baked potatoes, complete with a dab of sour cream.

We left the farm with one quart of cold water dills, two pints of Peggy's (to die for) bread and butter pickles, and several ears of corn.

Check my Art Gallery for watercolor pictures of the Swiss Chard and Eggplant I photographed in her garden two years ago.  Watch for an Artichoke watercolor from this year's garden.  Give thanks for all the gifts from the Earth.
