We stopped and talked to one of our neighbors the other day, I asked about his garden - 'Were those pumpkins, I saw?'
Yep. pumpkins. And two days later he was on our front steps dropping off some of his bounty.
We have not had a frost yet, but it did get down to 37 degrees the other night which was low enough to turn my basil into little black shriveled up leaves. This was my second crop, but I shoulda harvested it earlier. Live and learn.
Some other friends went to an apple farm and brought us about 20 pounds of apples. They would not let us pay for them either. After tonight's supper of chili, we will enjoy a warm serving of apple betty.
