Blue Eyes Passed Today....

Blue Eyes and her son Magara
Blue Eyes passed away today. I'll do a post all about her later but I can't deal with that right now, I'll just start crying again. She was about 14 years old this year.

Pumpkin Weigh-in

I just weighed my pumpkins for a fun little compilation on The Easy Garden. So I thought I would share the weights for my pumpkins on here too. I gave them numbers so it's easier to keep them strait.
1- 6.5
2- 4.2
3- 3.4
4- 2.5
5- 4
6- 3.8
7- 3
8- 5.4
9- 2.4
10- 3.8
11- 1
12- 1.2 (the one with the chicken bite)

I think Otter is gone....

Most of the cats are on the deck at least once a day or at least every other day. But a few days ago Otter (grey stripe in the above picture) stop showing up He had been having trouble and loosing weight, and we where getting worried about him. But I'm starting to think he has passed, many cats go off on their own to die.

We have no idea on his age, due to his history. He was dumped out in the country by someone who no longer wanted him. We belive that he was no longer wanted because A: He talked, loudly, when he wanted attention and B: He was never taught manners, as in he had no idea counters where off limits.   But he was very loving, even if he was a little annoying and he got along with all 6 of the other cats. We will miss you Otter.

Fall Harvest

Here are the pictures of my harvest I haven't posted yet, up till now:

 And on Saturday for fear of frost, which it didn't, (It snowed in town Sunday morning, but it didn't stick) I did my major harvest because gourds will rot in storage if they get more then a little frost. I have a little left to harvest, carrots and potatoes for one but those can last until the ground freezes, and if the weather holds out I might have some more gourds to harvest and more tomatoes.
 This one the chickens had a taste of:
 This bright orange pumpkin I harvested last week, next to it is my only watermelon:
