Punkin' Patch 2009

Here is a peek of the punkin' patch today!! I was hoping to get pics taken last month at about the same time as I took them last year but time just got away from me!!! The patch is looking good but dry, hopefully we get some rain from mother nature this weekend to save me from pulling the water wagon along to each row!

Watching the punkins turn from green to orange are really fun -- they have really just started to do this this past week.
This year we are featuring both white and BLUE pumpkins!

We will also have the smaller pumpkins too -- per request ;o)

We have a few mounds of the Big Max pumpkins again this year too -- this one should turn out perfect since he's already sitting upright!

Watch for more pics as the patch changes ;o)

Gourd FuN

Late last summer and early fall you might recall me posting pics about our punkin' patch. THIS is what a year of drying will do, create FuN ;o)

This particular gourd is called a birdhouse gourd --I let them dry out all winter and had fun creating with them in their new dried out hard form recently!

I used a dremel tool to do the carving after I had traced the T and stars on this gourd. I then used a short string of lights and some silk leaves to finish off the decoration. This particular gourd I created for our friends out the Black Hills ~ I delivered it just this past week when we arrived at their house for an awesome week of vaca and our annual trek out to Sturgis.

Thanks again Dale & Michelle ;o)

I just couldnt resist to share this pic ~ out our back door around the deer feeder...baby racoons. Growing up we had a baby coon for a summer as a pet and we called him 'coony bear' ... these little guys look just like he did all of those summers ago ;o)
