Jim harvested the pumpkins today from our garden. Most of the pumpkins are for making yummy Maple Pumpkin Pie. And of course, there are also a few for decoration, along with the colored corn. Interested in the Maple Pumpkin Pie, check out the recipe page.
We have been so fortunate to have a great crop from our garden, despite the lack of rain. The green beans came out of our ears, the swiss chard is full of color, the beets are deep, deep red, the pickles are dilly and sweet and the corn....well, we are certainly not lacking for it. We had a yummy corn roast the other night with wonderful friends and family out at our firepit behind the farm. We are thankful to be able to put this food away for the winter and to be able to have enough to share. What is left to harvest is winter squash and some more tomatoes for salsa.
And of course, every job needs a good supervisor. That is Mocha's job.
Jim and Sandy have been operating Happy Acres together since 1987.
