My Maple trees are super orange this year.
From what I researched, which is minimal, it is that we had warm days followed by cool nights and it happened early this year. It is certainly the best color ever.


MY oh My time rushes by!

WHOA slow down!!!!!!!!
It has been almost 2 months since I posted anything. In my defense it is the busiest time of year. Woodshed  needs to  be filled fridge and freezer needs filling. To slow us down this year 3 major appliances went out within a week of each other. We just got back on track replacing them.

We had great success with Spaghetti Squash this year......we are doing those babies again next year. I love it with Kielbasa.



This was our first year trying to grow GIANT pumpkins....we learned a lot! Next year bigger and better. This odd shaped one was the biggest and it fell off the vine too early.

Carrots went crazy this year, plenty for the freezer.

Haven picked her pumpkin from Siemers farm. She wanted one she could carry.
