Boo!



By Shelby McDonald

From Peg Cochran’s Farmer’s Daughter series

 I love this time of year, don’t you?  The air is crisp and clear and smells of wood smoke.  The colors of the changing leaves always make me marvel at Mother Nature.

 Love Blossom Farm is winding down for the year—we’re putting in our cover crops and harvesting the last vegetables for canning.  The shelves in the cellar are filling up with colorful jars of pickles, beets, tomatoes and other produce to sustain us during the long winter.

Bitsy and Jenkins are still spending their days outside roaming the farm and keeping small critters at bay although as the nights get chillier, they are coming in earlier and earlier to curl up by the fire.

The children are excited about Halloween, of course.  We’ve grown a nice crop of pumpkins to share with our neighbors and carve for ourselves.  They are still trying to decide on their costumes—Billy is torn between Ironman and Superman, and  Amelia wants to be something glamorous like a rock star (she is a teenager after all.)

What do you plan to be for Halloween?
 
You can follow Shelby McDonald's adventures on Love Blossom farm in the first book in the series--No Farm, No Foul.

  2. Me? Nothing but a mom. ;) But my daughter is going to be a big shaggy dog. haha! We live in Oregon so it's a great warm costume for a presumably cold October day.

    1. That's very smart! I remember hating that I had to put my coat over my costume!

  3. I plan to be me. I don't care for Halloween anymore. I can't handle the ghoulishness.
