I never seem to make bouquets in the house
but since they were calling for frost last night I
went out and cut a few blooms and brought them
in. I want to share them with Noelle from
“ Ramblings From A Desert Garden” for her
Monthly Garden Bouquet.
It is made up of my Crimson Bouquet Roses,
Iceberg Roses and Cosmos.
The leaves are falling fast now here and
covering the flowerbeds so today will be
filled with raking and mowing up leaves.
We mow them because it is good for this
old clay soil here to have the leaves added
Since I love bears I had to pull out my
little Halloween bears this month.
The Circleville Pumpkin Show starts today.
It is advertised as the ‘Greatest Free Show
on Earth’. Everything in it made from pumpkins.
Pumpkin: Fudge, Ice Cream, Brownies, Bread,
Pizza, Chili, Sloppy Joes, Taffy, Waffles, Butter,
and of course Pumpkin Pie.
The local bakery Lindsey’s, makes a 400 pound
pumpkin pie for it every year.
Try this recipe for your next pie!
100 pounds cooked pumpkin
40 pounds sugar
26 gallons milk
15 dozen eggs
4 pounds corn starch
1 1/4 pond pumpkin spice
1 1/4 pond of salt
42 pounds of pie dough
Bake for 4 hours.
Now that’s a pie.
There is also a contest for who can grow the
biggest pumpkin. Last years winner grew one
weighing in at 1,635 pounds. So I am wondering
how big the biggest one will be this year.
Update: This years winning pumpkin weighed
in at 1,662 pounds.
October is flying by and soon those little
goblins will be showing up.
Until Next Time,
