Autumnal Equinox Collage

BHU:  Hey mom, look what I see!

PATTY:  I see it, too, Bhu!  It's a morning glory growing among the coleus!  It's so pretty!  How would you like an ear scritch?

BHU:  Yes, right there, mom!  Thanks!

Here's to a Happy Autumn for Effuryone!  xxoo

Mr Potato Head

 PATTY:  Today we harvested our potato crop.  What Sabryin is holding is a $4 potato.  Granted, it IS an organically grown potato.  The problem was that three times in the last six weeks critters have eaten the tops off the potato plants.  We got less than three pounds (see photo below).  

We have lots more tomatoes and okra and haven't harvested the sweet potatoes yet, but that's all the taters we are gonna get.  Disappointing, to say the least; but not discouraging.  We'll be doing it again next year, but we will definitely be fencing and bunting the area. 

BHU:  Wake me up when you start harvesting the tuna. 

PATTY:  Have a great weekend efurryone!  xxoo

PATTY:  Tomato saucing instead of blogging.  Here we are at the very start of the process with onions, basil, oregano, garlic and tomatoes.  The fragrance is amazing!  I was obsessing about how to remove the seeds from my homemade sauce when I found an article claiming the seeds are the best (most nutritious and flavorful) part of the tomato.  Besides, we all know what happens to the seeds . . . they sort of remove themselves . . .

We finally got some rain this morning.  Bhu is snoozing in the window, grateful that I am using the flashy box for something other than capturing his efurry move.

Have a great Sunday!  xxoo
