Pumpkin picking

Julie, Libby, Logan and Naomi picked pumpkins Saturday afternoon. Dad used to drive the pick-up truck out to the field in the evening and we would all load it with pumpkins. We older ones would cut the pumpkins from the vines and the younger ones would carry the smallest pumpkins. We would load the pick-up bed and then Dad would drive it out to the road where we would line them in neat rows to sell. When it was dark we'd head inside with red noses and cockleburs on our socks. That was before Libby or Logan or Naomi were even born. Now Logan is old enough to drive the tractor and there are no little ones running around getting their mittens stuck together with burrs.


  1. Were the hems of your skirts covered with burrs?
    I love how you do all your work together! It gives me a warm feeling!

  2. They're growing up!

    I thought of you the other day while we were driving and saw a sign that said "got hay?"

  3. Wow! That's alot of pumpkins! What do you do with them all? Do you save the seeds at all to plant next year?
    Looks like it has been windy and cold by you...winters almost here!
    Have a good day!
