Clearing the cobwebs at Brainripples
I hope you like the fresh look at Brainripples. I’m still configuring and adding content, so watch for portfolio features, new blog posts, and the return of the missing links (somehow I only see one-third of the original links I had listed at the blog).
More to come!
After growing pumpkins in Pennsylvania, things don’t feel quite like home without a big, sprawling, crazy pumpkin patch in the front yard.
These sugar pies are giving a much stronger showing this year (as are all the vegetables), and I hope to be making fresh pumpkin pies as early as October.
As of last week, the plants have cleared the fence. They use their tendrils to walk wherever they want. The faster they grow, the faster they grow.
Did you know that you can actually hear pumpkins laughing?
The ring of fence you see in the foreground is the perimeter for a new garden bed I’m working on. Dogs out, compost in. The pumpkins are eager pioneers.
Squash blossoms are stunning. They open with the rising sun. Got any yummy squash blossom recipes to share? Tell us in the comments.
For every pumpkin I find, there are probably three more I cannot see. Got a guess for how many pumpkins I’ll have by October 31st?
They’re heading for the forest now… In fact, I hear that pumpkins like to grow in trees.
