First Day of Harvest


Yesterday I was out in the pumpkin patch and noticed
some of the pumpkins were actually ready to harvest.
This is the fun part-seeing what happened after my
job is finished!


If you are not into chickens you will probably think this
odd ( if you are you'll totally get it), but I
think it is so cool that some of the green pumpkins
match the color of the eggs from my Americauna chickens.


Lovely in their greeniness!

It's Almost Pumpkin Season!


I have been spending a lot of time down on my knees in

the pumpkin patch. It is probably not a coincidence that

it is the same position as praying.


It has been a very strange growing season this
summer. All the crops have been later than usual and
the pumpkins are later as well. We are hoping they will
be ready by the beginning of October.


I have been known to try etching anything growing at
the farm, and this year is no exception. I think the
experiment on this tear-drop shaped squash
is going to be a grand success.
It is scarring beautifully!
