You Say Tomato and I Say Tomahto !

Here it is, almost October, and I am still getting loads of tomatoes.  This is the very first time that I am able to grow and put up enough tomatoes for winter.  Do you know how excited I am?  The hoop houses have really made a difference.  

I pick huge bowls every other day, and every other day I skin them and cook them down.

I also grab a couple of peppers and onions and make spaghetti sauce, bag it and freeze it.

I also have a lot of jalapeno peppers to pick.  I see stuffed jalapeno peppers in my future.

I saw this grasshopper and immediately a song pops into my head : Hold on tight to your dream, then hold on tight to your la la....
For some reason, I noticed a lot of grasshoppers this year.  The sound of the grasshoppers takes me back to age seven, living in Texas with my Aunt and Uncle.  I'm not sure if having grasshoppers is a good or bad thing, but they brought back a lot of good memories for me this summer. 

When its hot out where does everyone hang?  Well, at the cemetery!  Pet cemetery that is!    

My two turkeys and two of my guinea's were making friends with Tully.  These two guinea's are the ones that I hatched on Fathers Day this year, and after a couple of weeks I put them in with the turkeys.  So now these two guineas hang out with the turkeys and don't even notice the other guinea's that I have.

I still have a couple of hydrangea flowers that refuse to believe that it is autumn.  No matter - I love all of their blooms.

What a beautiful view of the Willapa hills.  I love living in this valley of ours.

Here is our house with most of the trees gone.  The pile of dirt that you see over in the left of the photo is where the pond is.  (Going to be.)

Little Miss Tully.  She loves to play.  With whom you ask?

With Lucy.  Its funny how little Tully is she thinks she such a big farm dog.  Hey, I'm not going to tell her that she is only 2 pounds!
