Barn and Garden Update

The garden is pretty much done for the fall. We planted some peas, broccoli, lettuce, and cabbage for the winter, but the chickens have eaten most of the lettuce and the others have not produced much. :(

The one thing we did harvest the winter was GOURDS!! Lots and lots of gourds. Here is a sampling. The one on top was painted as a swan (gorgeous, huh? :D)

I took this picture of the gourd flowers this summer and they are quite lovely...along with the shadows on this green gourd. It is such a little treat to find old pictures that brighten your day.

The barn is also moving along. Mostly weatherproofed now and siding and trim are slowly going up. There has been a break over the past few weeks what with thanksgiving and family coming up. We had a lovely thanksgiving, enjoying time with the 3 kiddos and Auntie S.
