Good Monday Morning ~~
The wind is blowing its dark & gray outside,
and I have a few PumPkins .... could it be
Fall is right around the corner. lol
DH & I went camping this weekend down
Lancaster way .... I had it in my head to come
home with a few PumPkins and that I did.
Bless my Husbands heart he drove, and drove till we
found a field where they were growing.
Not an easy task at this time of year,
I could have bought a cat, a dog, a goat, some tobacco
or a truck load of corn but pumpkins not so much.
(I was told they have had trouble with
pumpkins in years past so its not a sure crop.)
When we finally found a field ... we had to locate the
Farmer, thanks to some neighbors .. we found him
a couple of large fields away.
He was an Old Order Mennonite Gentlemen around forty.
He had seven children of varying ages ... four boys, and
three girls, the boys were out helping him in the fields.
We asked if there was a possibility if I could purchase
a few pumpkins and he graciously said yes.
We walked right out and he
let me pick the ones I wanted.
We talked for a good half an hour as he was most interested
in hearing about Connecticut.
These encounters make the trips
to PA so memorable for me.
If I believed in former lives ~~ I would say
I must have lived one or two of mine in Pennsylvania !! :-)
The rain we had yesterday, and the rain we are getting today is most
welcome we are in desperate need of it.
I hope where ever you are you are getting just what you Need.
