Nearly December

The lettuce has stopped growing; it's been about this size for nearly a month. A couple weeks ago dad cut some anyway. Maybe he just didn't want the deer to get it. If you look very closely at the dirt on the plastic, you might see a couple bees on it. They were out and flying around in the sun, and here are getting a drink from the wet ground. Aunt Laurie has been working on taking the strings and stakes out of the tomatoes. Today I even did a few! A couple stuck too deep are left for dad to pull.
The only market still going is Beaver on Saturdays, which will continue through December. Last Saturday we were visiting David and my mom's family for Thanksgiving, so Sue took squash and cabbage to market for us. It was a pretty slow and cold day, so I'm glad I didn't have to go.
