Friday was a misc sort of day - put stuff back in the camper, cleaned up the front porch, and made a visit to the garden.
I dug up some carrots and beets to see how big they were, and decide to dig or leave them in a bit longer. Carrots? Fail. Popcorn? Fail. Beets and Sweet potatoes? Maybe. I can leave those two in another month, but everything will get pulled now, but the tomatoes. Sweet potatoes and beets are small, but there is hope unless we get a frost, then the plants won't grow. It's too wet to work out there, so the garlic bed has not even been put in yet.
Checked the berry bushes too. Picked 4 red raspberries.
I got a bit of rosemary into the pantry, but not enough for medicinal purposes. Will keep harvesting until our first frost.
Thyme harvest has been small this year, as well as green onion and chives. Parsley did pretty good. The two new sage plants grew nicely as well.
I started roasting pumpkins. These were the hardest sugar pumpkins I've ever cut in half. They are tough. I kid you not. The skin was about 1/4 thick. Any tips on softening them to cut them more easily? Otherwise the rest may become target practice.
Made some of our delicious Whiskey Bacon pumpkin seeds too. The guts were treated to the chickens.
I also got some crochet work done (photos to come soon). Hubby kept texting me all day for a date night out, with a motorcycle ride, and just as I went inside to change clothes, he canceled on me. He worked over (sigh....). Daughter went out to a football game, so it was little ol' me by myself for several hours. I immediately changed to PJ's, and binge watched netflix with crochet work. That's a lot for a Friday. We'll see what happens over the weekend now. Thanks for reading through all of this.
