Busy day, but at least it's My Day
As requested, here's a picture of one of our blue pumpkins. I forget the official name. It looks a little more slate blue in person.
We have a variety of heirloom oddities. You really can't see, but the one under my hand is called "Cinderella" and is shaped like Cinderella's carriage. They get so orange they are almost red. The 'warty' ones in the middle are very weird looking. I'm taking a relish-making break to pose with Daddy's pumpkins, hence the coverall apron. I love these aprons, they are the Edwardian ones from Sense and Sensibility.
At first glance this is a cute picture of Ella and her Grandpa. But on closer inspection you see Ell riding her tractor with Grandpa on his riding mower, cutting grass. Attitudes like this is why farm children have a 90% higher chance of dying at home than city kids. Obviously I got over-ruled and Daddy let her do this. We won't be taking her tractor over there again, any time soon.
