Photos and Pumpkins
I haven't spent much time getting to know my new camera, but I am still amazed at the difference in photo quality that the new, better technology and a real zoom lens makes!

My pumpkins did not quite ripen on the vine. We've had heavy frosts lately which has killed the vines, so I picked most of them today. There were a few already starting to rot in the garden. From what I've googled, I should be able to 'cure' these ones so that they turn orange. Regardless, if they don't get squishy, someone can make jack-o-lanterns from them even if they are green.
It's very cold and very wet this weekend. I saw a few flakes of snow today. Tomorrow, we have wood being delivered. It's definitely time for toques and boots and hot apple toffee lattes!
