Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Biggest! Ever! We ARE in the North Afterall

 Today, I took my knife and beheaded this 29 pound pumpkin, the biggest that we have ever managed to grow! It took three weeks in the house by the window to get it to ripen. It was well worth the effort!

There are now three pies on the counter, three in the oven plus two pumpkin dishes for tonight. That is half the critter used up. Now for tomorrow, do I make 8 pies, or vary with some coffee cake or muffins? Decisions. Always decisions! We have another 10 pounder ripening plus a 5 pounder. Looks like another couple of days in the kitchen!

That's a lot of pumpkin. The pies look delicious! How about a pumpkin roll or two tomorrow?

Amazing and my favorite pie is pumpkin!

Mom used to make fried pumpkin which simply meant cooking the liquid out and use the normal spices...no crust.

You can freeze the pies and they will be fine.
