Barn Hop #34

Welcome, Friends!! Can you believe that we had over 160 of you link up last week? We're way beyond anyone person being able to visit every single blog, but I hope you're able to move around and meet one or two new people each week and check in on a few favorites.

As I mentioned before, October caught us a bit by surprise, being so busy and all. But I see a clearing on the calendar in about another 7 or 8 days... if we can just hang on a bit longer! Still, I managed to do a little bit of gardening with the help of my oldest daughter.

Thankfully, a few parsnips and carrots actually sprouted, so I've covered them with my low tunnel hoops and agribon. We planted some more lettuce, kale, and beets, but this time in raised beds. I pulled the tomato plants and actually hung them up in the garage to see if they would ripen this way. If not, I'm making lots of green tomato salsa, relish, chow-chow... whatever!

So, here's a challenge for all of you... can anyone identify this plant? I'm pretty sure it's not a strawberry, but of course, that's everyone's first opinion. It's growing in my garden and I'd love to hear some guesses...
