Friday’s Hunt v4.20

17 Nov

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with U, mosaic/collage, and “I ate this.” I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will try to make sure to visit all participants. I have to say, the change to my teaching assignment this year is really killing me. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with T:  Tired.  There are a lot of us around here who are tired.  I’ll just share a napping Leo with you.

Leo

Black and White:  My sister brought me a butternut squash out of her garden since Sky ate most of mine.  I plan on enjoying it this weekend.

Paper:  I’m currently reading a paperback novel.  The pages are made of paper too.

Now it’s your turn!

The Start of the Canning Season

14 Aug

Despite the drought, my garden is doing well.  I am fortunate enough to have a well, so I can use it to water my garden.  For some reason, Sky doesn’t seem quite as destructive as he had been.  That’s good, too.

I have lots of tomatoes starting to ripen.

I made a small batch of sauce and four quarts of juice.

I’m guessing they will really start ripening just as I have to go back to work at the end of the week.

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.
