De and I went down to the garden Friday night and brought in the last of what we wanted to save. It included a handful of small bell peppers, two little zucchini, one yellow zucchini squash, seven little white pumpkins that will become decoration for Daughter #2's wedding in three weeks, and a wheelbarrow load of "stripetti" spaghetti squash, and butternut squash. It was dark (that happens about 7:30 these days) before we were done, thus the flash pics.
|These pumpkins will be part of Daughter #2's wedding decorations.|
|These will part of a tasty array of warm winter meals!|
|Finally done, with some decorative white trim!|
Next up: (in no particular order) lights and winter watering arrangements in the coop, garden clean-up, finishing up the ham radio tower, one last lawn mowing and removing the deck, putting the compost pile to bed for the winter, and surely a host of thing I've forgotten or don't know about yet. Ya gotta love life on the homestead! Always something to do!
I hope everyone's pre-winter preps are going well and that everyone stays safe in the process.
