Harvest Time. . .


When I saw these big pumpkins at the Farmers Market, I knew that FALL was definitely here! I wonder how much those big ones weigh?

Every year, when this time arrives, I'm so jealous! Here we don't celebrate with pumpkins, and I love them!

Very beautiful! They have such a nice color. Oh must be very heavy!? Guessing..... 529 oz?! (15 kilos in Norwegian). More or less.. ?? :D

Viola said...

Well, after one more look.. maybe up to 705 oz (20 Norwegian kilo)... ;)

Good picture!
We went to the Farmers Market yesterday to pick up some green peanuts to boil.

Fall Break-a relatively new concept. I think the children go back to school a little earlier than they used to. Does it coincide with Columbus Day? Any way, I think it depends on the school and the state one lives in, whether there is a Fall break.

I have posted some of my craft entries already and will post more. I made my card last night. I will photograph it. My camera is full of photos so I'll need to go have those put on disk soon.

Pumpkins, apples and scarecrows are popping up all over! Isn't it great?

I'm with Malyss. We don't celebrate Halloween at all.

When I would take my class to the pumpkin patch, many onf them would choose those big ones. The wise child would choose a nice one that was not too big to carry.

One year we had arranged to go to my friends acre of pumpkins. Unfortuantely his hired hand had turned on the sprinkler and then there was a frost. The compbination made all thepumpkins musshy. My friend went to the supermarket and bought a hundred pumpkins and "salted" the field with them so that the kids would be able to find a good one.

One doesn't have to make a jack o lantern out of pumpkins for halloween. . . pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dinner is wonderful!

A very good friend of mine used to grow pumpkins and enter them in the county fair. She once had one that weighed over 300 pounds! It took several men to get it to the fairgrounds.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
