Wow, we have been having a lot of rain. My daughter has been tracking it and in just a couple of days we have had almost an inch. We are now into the rainy days of fall. I love the rain, so I don’t really mind. I harvested a handful of tomatoes out of the garden, before the rain split them. I have more carrots to harvest as we need them. My Artichoke has suddenly taken off. Evidently it is enjoying the weather we have been having.

Today’s Tuesday Garden Party comes to you from Michelle of Simplify Live Love.
Happy Tuesday from lovely Boston!
I packed up my kids last week and the five of us drove to upstate New York. We wanted to visit a great friend of ours and also needed to head East because my husband and I had business meetings in Boston. If you’ve never visited the Northeast in the fall, you are really missing out.
It’s my first time here, and I have loved every single minute. The turning leaves are just so beautiful and we’ve had such a nice time out East. I don’t have any awesome gardening advice to impart this week, but check out some of the things we’ve seen as we traversed Boston Common Gardens, Beacon Hill, downtown Boston, the North End of Boston, and walked along the Charles River. Image if you will, 2 moms, 1 dad, and 7 kids – walking the streets of Boston. It’s been so funny.
The fall window baskets are amazing out here and we absolutely loved all of the parks. We found community gardens for school kids and visited the duckling pond at Boston Commons.
Did you read the awesome kids book Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey? We had such a nice time seeing all of the sights. My husband heads back to Iowa via plane today, but the kids and I go back to New York with my friend, Robin, for more adventures before we finally drive to Iowa to bed the garden down for the winter! Stay tuned for more fun posts about our homeschooling on the road adventures.
