roasted the seeds last night. Of course I left the costume preparation until the last minute and was up late last night altering the vampire cape so it wouldn't drag on the ground. The witch hat disappeared for a while, but was found again, in the closet of all places.
Almost a year ago, we wandered through a store and found costumes for almost nothing and thought we were so clever for buying next years costumes when they were cheap. I managed to out-smart myself in all of this however. We purchased a cute little duck costume for the little one, but I had to put it away because the big kids kept trying to squeeze into it. Now, it's Halloween and I can't seem to remember where I put it away exactly. Aren't I clever? Wherever it is, it's safe.
We enjoyed a very nice October, but the nights have gotten very cold. I harvested everything I could out of the garden and cleaned it all up. It felt good to finally get some order to the jungle and be done for the winter. I had planned on putting in a fall garden, but I just never got to it.
Growing up, we always had a snow storm on Halloween, but it doesn't look like we'll get a storm tonight. Hope you have a happy, warm and safe Halloween!

The North box looks pretty sad since the buttercup squash attacked the tomato trellis and then fell down, pulling most of the tomatoes with it. There are still many green tomatoes on the plants and I have plans for them, but they will have to wait until I have all my equipment, or until I'm planning a trip back to the ranch.
