Sorry I took so long to post here, but it has been an extremely busy summer.
Many firsts for us and me. I grew Atlantic Giant Pumpkins this Summer and had 3 200 plus pounder pumpkins to care for in my patch. My heaviest we took to a weigh off in Oswego, NY this September weighed in at 256 pounds. Not the 300 pounds we thought, but all in all a successful first timer. I was pleased until I got to the weigh off and saw all the 599 plus pounder pumpkins as my competition. Still proud to be there with 2 giants.
Second, I've been hiking outdoors alot with a newfound family member. My husband has a cousin that is local to us and not 3 1/2 hours away which has been wonderful for us and hubby. We've been on the go all Summer. Been hiking thru the woods Orienteering and Geocashing. What fun!
Third and not least, we were taking care of a 16 year old sweet heart doggie named Princess. It was my mother in law's dog and initially her husbands dog who passed away in 93. So it was a difficult month of June for us. She was such a good pet, and we loved her dearly and miss her. We've burried her out in our property and MIL has a grave marker ready for her that she ordered. So will have to hike up to the lot line and place it in the ground next to her site before the ground freezes.
Aside from that, all is well and just have been extremely busy having Summer pool parties and cook outs and guest from out of twon. It's been a busy summer and I've missed you guys.
I'm still trying to get into the Members Only forum. I am still having difficulties.
