Time to Harvest

As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease. Genesis 8:22


You'll notice that some of the pumpkins are still a bit green. I decided to harvest them early so there will be no more deer attacks!


What a fun planting year! I don't have much of a green thumb. There were some frustrating times. Overall, however, I did enjoy this year and the harvest it brought, small as it was.

Way back in April we started with little seeds. I was hopeful for the pumpkins and sunflowers. Today I want to share this bounty with you.


Fall decorating can be very frugal if you use what you harvest!



What's left of the pumpkin patch was dumped onto our compost pile.



Over time the sunflower will dry. It's going to be a great treat for the birds as they prepare for a harsh Wisconsin winter.



Look at all those sunflower seeds!


Have you started to harvest yet? Do you decorate with your harvest?

yesterday's soda intake: none
