Autumn in Vermont

I took some pictures around the house the other day to share with everyone.



It was a good winter squash year.


We only got 3 pumpkins from our five plants. I only let one pumpkin grow per plant hoping to get giant pumpkins. They were slow germinating which led to us getting only BIG pumpkins as opposed to giant ones.







These shots were looking down the driveway towards the out front veggie garden. Corn, onions, potatoes, squashes, kale, beans, leeks, and sunflowers grew in this garden.

We are rapidly approaching "peak foliage" in our part of the world. The highways and byways and even the little dirt roads are crowded with leaf peepers taking in the beauty of the change of seasons.

that is a crazy amount of squash....the leaves are changing here but it doesn't feel like fall as it has been in the mid 80s everyday.
