End of October Activites

















The table on the porch is full of these beautiful pumpkins, gords and squashes. Some we grew and the others came from our son's in-laws place in Chelias. They have HUGE, awesome garden and are very generous.

Last night we had pumpkin cake. I'll have to work out the recipe because I made it by "feel".
It was made of baked pumpkin, whole wheat flour, lots of spices and had dried figs in it.
So moist & yummy!!!
















Today I planted garlic on the north end of one of the large raised beds. I bought the garlic at the local fruit stand. Maybe next year I'll order some hard stem varieties. You can see what the bed looked like before...














I placed the cloves about 4 inches apart and pushed about an inch into the ground.
Now to hope till spring that they will grow. :)


This is the last of tomatoes that we have inside ripening.
We are using them as they get ripe in our salads or with cottage cheese.







I love the pictures of produce!
They are beautiful and give me hope
that we will have more next summer.

Ooo garlic. Love the stuff, I believe it is so powerful that we take it for granted. Good health!
