This is the view from my kitchen window -
Can you believe how beautiful it is? Its so amazing to watch all the colors change as the weather begins to cool. Every day I can pick out more and more patches of color. Soon there will be snow covered mountains, something I am not quite ready for. Hopefully, fall will last a bit longer.
The weather here has been unseasonably cool (notice the looming, dark clouds in the first picture). This always gets me thinking about canning. Which reminded me, I have a 30 lb box of Rome Beauties in my garage, just begging to be turned into something delicious. Maybe one day I'll actually get around to it.
We did, however, get around to the pumpkin patch. The girls love to go. Who wouldn't? Loads of pumpkins, in all different shapes and sizes to debate over. We came home with a bunch of little ones and a few big ones for carving in the next few weeks. Last year there was hardly any variety in color. This year we had everything from green to burnt orange.
What do you think is under the green skin? If I lightly carve it (as opposed to puncturing the entire rind, see here for an example), it would be bright orange?
