Fete de la pomme de terre

Went to a local village fair today, the fete de la pomme de terre.

Had a wander around in the sun (hitting 30°C again today - a real Indian summer), and took a few photos.

No chance of a winning pumpkin this year, my measly 25 kilos is nowhere near the current first place of 42 kilos.

For the first time in a while I felt very photographically inspired so took my camera and took several shots and actually loaded them onto flickr and redbubble straight away.

Feeling smug so off to beat Thea at Monopoly now.

I just swapped our little 6lb pumpkin for the 1.5 stone one of my parents as they won't use it all. I thought that was pretty good but 42k? That's very nearly 6 stone by my reckoning! More of a Pumpking if you ask me!

I take solace in the fact that the bigger ones don't generally taste as good!

Also our days of 30 degrees are long behind us. We are scraping high teens now. Well and truly into the winter garden!

We don't have a winter garden here, by the time November rolls around, we start hitting the minus teens overnight, and from the end of December to Feb we generally have snow on top of snow on top of snow with average lows in the minus 20s, so really make the most of the short season that we have.
