Despite a late start and wet ground, we got quite a few pumpkins.  Having a frost free, unusually warm September helped.  It was an extra month of summer.

Our quality control officer...

...inspecting the crop.  No pumpkins can be sold without his approval.

The green ones will turn orange within a few weeks also.  We wound up planting a second crop on a higher, dryer section of the garden.  Here the pumpkins ripened, but were small - actually the perfect size for indoor decorating.

Washed and ready for the end-of-driveway pumpkin sales.

The Blood Moon - August 30, 2015

It was a warm, breezy evening, perfect for watching the show.

The earth's shadow encroaching on the moon

I had to keep adjusting my camera as the light diminished.
