Not sure how October arrived so quickly, but here it is! We woke up to temps in the 30’s this morning and we had snow in the mountains this weekend. Knowing the cold temps were coming, we did lots of harvesting this weekend!
We harvested 3 large containers of grapes, about 2 bushels of peppers, the last of the corn and our pears. I spent yesterday using the steam juicer to make grape juice and got through 2 containers, one more to go. Still have to deal with all the rest though! I plan to dice and slice the peppers and freeze them along with the corn. Then I will can the pears and the grape juice.
I still have to harvest and plant our potatoes, and soon I will get our pumpkins and winter squash harvested, hopefully next weekend. Then I can attempt some fall yard decorations around here! Here is a photo of our pumpkin and winter squash harvest a few years ago. This year, we will have a LOT more pumpkins which I am really excited about! This year I planted all kinds of weird pumpkins which you can see a lot of the varieties at the bottom of this post about my favorite pumpkin of all time, the Blue Jarrahdale Pumpkin!
Today I chose to feature this post by Frugal Living at the Ranch, because I was so impressed by all of their fall yard decoration ideas! I hope you find some ideas here that you can use too!
