PUMPKINS!
Winter Squashes & pumpkins grace this table scape.
It is the middle of October and I finally got the decorating bug.



 But in the mean time, I have been tying up herbs to dry and putting tomatoes on the window sills to ripen as our temperature dipped to freezing

Drying herbs is relatively easy and a wonderful smelling bonus to any room they are dried in.

I like to do the bulk of my drying in the kitchen, with little sprigs of mint throughout the house; bedrooms & bathrooms.

I started drying my herbs in 1996 when I moved to the Northeast United States. I love using my dried herbs through each following year and gathering again the succeeding fall. But this blog is about Pumpkins so, I have compiled some of the ideas we are using this season and hope you like what I have shared! Enjoy!

Pumpkins make great decorations.
