just a typical tuesday

If I see one more hot pepper I might lose it!

Too many hot peppers.

We spent a breezy Tuesday afternoon with the peppers. About an hour into our harvest, I couldn’t help but pray that this would be the last time picking them this season.


It’s not that I hate hot peppers, I just don’t want to spend any more time with them until next year.  All good things must come to an end you know!

After a few hours freezing in the peppers we had to tend to our last planting of lettuce. Which included a lot of weeding.

After the weeding was complete, we had to lay down a row cover to keep the lettuce dry and warm during the really cold mornings.

Laying down the cover is a lot more difficult than it looks. Especially when it’s windy! But look at how beautiful it is.

Henry was there for moral support.

The only thing that powered me through the day was all the fuel I got from Monday nights dinner.

God this was good. And hey, there was even a jalapeno pepper thrown in there.   You all should really try to make this.  I promise carving the pumpkins out is easy and totally worth the extra time!

Have a great afternoon.

    Andrea, that pumpkin chili dinner was beautiful!!! I love chili, and your recipe sounded great. But the pumpkin bowls were the real kicker. Gosh did my mouth water for chili just like that. Hope you make this dish a fall tradition. Fall is my favorite time of the year anyhow, and coming inside to something like this would be heaven. Thanks for sharing. Love, your Montana Aunt Pat.

      Aunt Pat,
      This chili recipe is super easy. And without the pumpkin bowls it is really easy! So good and very festive like you said.

      Speaking of festive, Have you guys gotten any snow yet? we just got our first snowfall of the year yesterday and I was not ready!! !brrrrrr
