Happy (Day After) Halloween!

happy Halloween!

This year wasn’t going to have a typical Halloween, unfortunately. We did have one trick-or-treat visitor (hi Farmer John, Kate, Mabel, and Rose) but otherwise it was uneventful. Still, we managed to carve a couple of pumpkins and put them out in the street for the drive-by viewers. This was Anh’s first carving. Can you guess which one was hers?

Meanwhile…I put the pigs into the garden last week – and they got their reward today for doing such a great job trashing it to a desolate moonscape:

Yeah, they are rough on the ground

The rain has hastened the process. Another couple of days, and there won’t be any green left. Even though the garden does look smashed to pieces, plenty of fertilizer is getting deposited, the soil is getting turned up, and after I put in some seed and another raised bed or two, it will be a very fertile and happy plot of land.

Meatloaf and Big Mama, of course, got their just reward:

ah...sweet pumpkin
Ah…sweet, delicious pumpkin!
