End of the Garden

20 Nov

With the change in weather to solid freezes at night, I had to get the rest of the stuff out of the garden.  I have one butternut squash and a couple of pie pumpkins.

I decided to bake the pumpkins today.  No sense in rushing, right?  I have a couple of days before Thanksgiving yet.

Oh, by the way, that ugly scar on the pumpkin might be from geese trying to decide if it was a weed or something for me.

I’m glad they decided I could have it.  I do still have a big pumpkin and a couple of acorn squash to bake too.

Snickers is keeping an eye on them for me until I get around to preparing them.

I’ve updated my sidebar to have the items for this coming week’s Friday’s Hunt.  I hope you’ll join me.

    MMmmm that pumpkin looks good!

    Freezing temperatures – necessary, I guess, I just wasn’t ready for it. 😀

    Yes the cold is reached us here too we had a frost yesterday. The pumpkins are all looking great and I’m sure what ever you make with them will be lovely

    Did you notice how beautiful the stem of the pumpkin in the first picture is? I it’s like a sculpture! And way to go Snickers!

    Nice post – especially the pumpkin guarding cat! Of course, our garden is at the other end of the year – and a cold spring means that growth has been slower the normal so far.
