When I gave my yard goats pumpkin the other day, I also put one in the barnyard for the geese.
They were happy about that.
When the goats came back up from pasture, Casey was quick to find the leftovers!
I helped little Ava find it too.
I think she liked it!
I really need to give them some more.
I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt. I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
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.
How long does it take to rid an acre of pumpkins of water hemp? I don’t know. I’m at seven hours so far. I’ll let you know the total when I’m done.
I am optimistic that when I get through it, the pumpkins will have grown enough to not need to weed them again. (I hope. I hope. I hope.) Honestly, if I could wave a magic wand and remove the water hemp, it would look really good! But I can’t do that, so I will keep pulling.
I actually see some little pumpkins on the plants that came up from the first two plantings.
The ones from the third planting are growing well.
Now I just need a bit of continued luck, and we’ll have plenty of pumpkins for the pumpkin patch this fall.
And a totally random thing: today is my 6th anniversary on WordPress. This is my 2,333rd post. Although, few of those I transferred from my previous blog.
I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt. The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.
