A Couple of Updates...............

In case you haven't been able to sleep at night wondering how the plastic bag idea is working with our squirrel problem........................  Well, we still have fruit!  I've caught a couple of squirrels sitting near the trees just staring at them, but none have ventured up into them.  Probably, because they can't figure out how to get past the bags.  I placed a bag around a couple of the apples to see what that would do..........don't try got way too hot inside and the fruit spoiled.  But, at least we've managed to bumfuddle the squirrels for now!

And of course, I'm sure last year's pumpkin is also on your mind.  It's still going strong.  At this rate, we won't have to buy one for this Halloween.  It's crazy ridiculous that a pumpkin can last this long just sitting on your kitchen counter.

Yesterday we visited two local farms and stocked up on tomatoes, red leaf lettuce, beets, onions and peaches.  My guys requested a pie of any kind, so peach it was.

Today there will be no baking on the to do list.  Instead, I'll be making some fingerless mitts on our antique sock machine.  Pictures to follow!

Tomorrow is our Bungee Sock Yarn Giveaway.  Check in then to see who the lucky winner is.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

YUMMMMMMM Peach Pie! I'm surprised the squirrels are stopped by the bags, they can be so clever about getting around or over or into things. Perhaps they perceive them as predators of some kind.
