More Nantucket fall beauty:
Day 17: Rosehips, winterberry and Bartlett’s windmill.
Food for the birds this winter,
and non-polluting energy from the wind.
Day 18: Huge golden apples in an abandoned orchard.
There aren’t many but the trees continue to bear.
Who planted these apple trees, and when?
Nantucket has so many apple trees,
and just as many locals who harvest them:
for juice, for cobblers and for hard cider.
Islanders don’t like to see anything go to waste.
Day 19: Greenhouse lettuce.
Even tho’ our outside garden bears only kale and sugar beets
this time of year,
we still have fresh greens.
What a blessing David and Tobias’ building project has been!
I am ever thankful.
