Here at The Sabine Farm it is Labor Day, though every day is a day of labor at The Sabine Farm.
Today I share with you readers the purple fruits of the place.
Here are some grape bunches. It wouldn’t be a good Roman place, in Horatian splendor, without grapes.
The third wave of blueberries is coming in.
Finally the plums are ripe!
We also have apples, such as these next to the Sabine Chapel. They aren’t quite ready yet.
Here is a view of the domus Sabina.
However, there are other dwellings which guests enjoy.
The house on the left is occupied by the owner of the whole place, at least when he is here.
If I don’t get back to Rome for the whole winter, this is a good Sabine skating pond.
And another pair across another Sabine field.
Another field within the fence, looking toward some corn.
There is a LOT of mowing to do here. It can take a couple says on a tractor.
The Sabine Pond has trout. The area is fairly nicely landscaped.
The greenhouse is a busy place in the spring. Right now I have most of my herbs inside.
And if you don’t like things too tidy, you can hike around in about 80 acres of forest.
The outdoor Stations are not yet set up on the paths.
And from the front door of the domus Sabina humilis, sed sarta et tecta.
This is pretty much my view from my window, as I type away here.
Just a taste of The Sabine view, in case anyone wonders why I like to split my time between Rome and here and why it takes dynamite to get me moving.
