There was frost on the pumpkins this week, so yesterday was the weigh in for the Great Pumpkin Champion.
Here is the winner. Weighing in at a whopping 21.2 pounds. But, whose pumpkin is it?
As for the rest of the garden. I pulled everything up. All that is left are my herbs that need repotted and brought in.
I was pretty happy with how amazing my mini sweet corn tasted. The carrots were also fabulous. I had enough turnips and beans to can two pints of stew vegetables.
I have all of the feathers cut out for one of the graduation quilts. Now I need to cut the pieces for the other graduation quilt.
The beekeeper stopped by and dropped off some honey. One of the hives lost it's queen and a bear stole the honey from two hives he had elsewhere. I also bottled my dandelion wine, so it was a productive weekend.
It was a great weekend. The leaves have held tough despite vicious winds. The colors are a feast for the eyes.
Are the colors still grand where you are? What harvest do you look forward to the most? I think mine is the dandelion wine. I hope you have a fabulous week.
