Oh, Oh I did it again. Sometimes I wonder where I left my brain. Did the third Wednesday of the month come earlier this month?
I love October, the pretty leaves, football, soccer, and HALLOWEEN. This year we grew some amazing pumpkins. My husband was not
impressed as he hauled a lot of them up from the garden and even helped carve one. Mostly I just like them to sit on the porch or
in the house and look their best!!
The other thing we grew well this year was apples. We probably have twenty apple trees of various kinds. Usually we wait until
after that first frost to pick them but this year, for the very first time, we have had a deer problem. When we came home
the other night there were three of them eating on the trees by the driveway. Come on guys, I’ll leave you some to eat if you
let me get the best ones off first. They are pretty inconsiderate little animals, but for some reason it is always a thrill to
see them standing there, even if they are getting my best apples. Do Daisy and Missy care – nope—they just stand at the kitchen
window and watch them. Such great watch dogs I have.
We are excitedly waiting for college basketball to start. One of our granddaughters will be playing this year and we can hardly
wait to go to the games. Got our booster tickets and someone to stay at the farm when we have to be gone for any length of time.
I am excited!!
