I'm sure for all of us it has been a bit different this year, but the one thing that has not changed is the
40-50 mph winds that hit right after you complete the outside set up!
Yep, right on schedule. Spent a beautiful day over a week ago setting up what we would call a modest outdoor display only to find most of it knocked down, broken and tattered after 3 straight days of relentless winds. But somehow it did not bother me as much as years past. Props can be fixed, mended and replaced. A pandemic helps put things into perspective and makes you slow down and appreciate things a bit more. So things have been repaired and sit waiting for the next wind storm that will undoubtedly come soon, but when we get knocked down, we get up again.

Been a pretty good year for the pumpkin patch. Weather has been good and the vine borers have not caused too much damage yet.
The plants have pretty much grew out of control and I just let them. These are probably the biggest plants that I have ever grown, although the pumpkins themselves are not all that big, about basketball size and it looks like we have at least 16 so far!
Lots of carving this fall.
