A Pumpkiny Post


I’ve been busy.


In a relaxed sort of way.

Doing what I like; liking what I do.


The honor-system, money-bucket on the tailgate has worked well.

Fall_DecoratingI’ve also had time to meet neighbors, visit with friends


and observe what people like.

Family & Friends.


Love them.

Love this life.


I didn’t even realize how much I missed Abigail until she came back.  She still likes a daily back scratch.  She should calve in May 2015.

I hope the ornamental corn is ready to harvest today or tomorrow.  Apparently, it isn’t politically correct to call it Indian corn?  I plan to bundle it and add it to the road-side market.  It only did so-so  We’ll see what I get.  I’ll take pictures and post.

Friends, I hope you are enjoying the start to a beautiful fall season.

Prayers for farm safety!

    Precious pictures of those little ones….and of course, all your four-legged friends! I’m starting to get in the fall mood – ready to buy some pumpkins, gourds, etc!

    How long does it take to get from Mattoon to your house? We’re going to be there tomorrow night thru Saturday and I would love to come buy some of those pumpkins. They look awesome!!!

    • Only about 30-40 minutes from Mattoon. You can message me on Facebook (Marla Eversole) if you need to. I will warn you, the pumpkin quantity is dwindling quickly; which, I guess, is a good thing! Sure wish I had more. I am working on picking the ornamental corn. I won’t be home this eve and am not sure about tomorrow yet, but the roadside display is available.

    Don’t know if we’ll make it that direction or not, but your pumpkins look wonderful. Hope you are able to sell all of them.
