Farm Girl Friday -23 September 2011

I love autumn, I think it's my favourite time of year.  It sure makes our farm gate stand look great.

A few tomatoes remain, but we are mostly into fall vegetables now.  Lots of different kinds.

These are new this year.  Trombocino squash.  Picked early it can be eaten as a summer squash.  This time of year they are treated like a butternut.  Seeds are only in the bulb part, the rest of the plant is solid flesh.  Colin's going to try drying some, but I'm not sure how that will work.

And here's the welcoming committee.  This is the in-laws dog, Rex.  He's not much of a guard dog, he'll just love you to death.  Though if you are stopping by, please leave your pets in the car.  Rex doesn't mind people visiting, but he's very territorial when it comes to his home and other dogs.

Stop by Deborah Jean's and see what the other Farm Girls are up to.

The only thing (I think) I like about fall is pumpkins. And the pie they make. We're going to pumpkinize our front step this weekend.
