Mom and I went to a local farm and nursery during her visit. I have plans to visit it earlier on in the year next year. I was pretty impressed with what they had. There were bins full to the brim with squash of every variety imaginable. I stocked up on what I thought I'd be able to use this winter. Next year, I intend to grow some of my own. In fact, I bought an heirloom pie pumpkin for the seeds as much as for the flesh -- you can be sure I'll be saving some of them for my garden (and still have plenty to roast).
I also bought some onions (mine didn't grow well this year - I had plenty of pearl onions though) and a huge cabbage.
Of course, my mother and I cannot pass up adorable kittens without picking them up and letting them know how adorable they are. There was a whole batch of kittens that lived in the green houses and farm stand. Aren't they handsome? For a quick minute, I thought Mom might smuggle one home.
I spent all day so far just grocery shopping and cleaning up the kitchen. Oh, and I baked a squash to have later for dinner. Alas, I have to get the yard winterized -- I can tell that snow is not far off for us. Time to get moving if I am going to get anything done today.
