hello dearies! well, i got a little camera-happy yesterday with all the gorgeous fall colors around me, so i though i would share with you! some are from my yard, and some are from my grandmomma’s yard.
these are from my front porch. i love the all the different shades of pumpkins- the gray ones are probably my favorite. i think i’m going to have go get some more colors for a wider assortment- i love pumpkins.
i was surprised to see a butterfly out yesterday! so glad i did though, and so glad it hung around long enough for a photoshoot..
potato time! i dug potatoes yesterday and was so happy to find so many. we’ll have plenty of sweet potatoes for the winter- yum yum!
this is my favorite (and very simple) sweet potato recipe, and is great for those skinny, long ones. slice them about 1/4″ thick and toss them w/ olive oil, salt & pepper (a little rosemary is delicious too). bake them in a single layer at 400° for 30-40 minutes. i’ve also done them before with nothing but sugar and cinnamon and they turn out completely different and just as tasty!
this is the green patch full of wintry goodness! spinach, mustard greens, kale and chard make for a delicious mix. i harvested all of this yesterday and now have *so much to freeze, but, we’ll have dark greens for the winter which i’m so excited about!
hope you all have a great weekend! what are you doing this early fall? xoxo, bonnie
