Halloween has been and gone and we have started thinking about maybe clearing up some of the decorations. First on the list was the pumpkins — three of them, all of them carved and left to sit on the wall at the front of the house so their flashing red eyes could scare the neighbours.
Eve did ask me to bring these inside so she could see if any of the pumpkin flesh was still edible enough to make yet more pumpkin soup. Given the size of the snail population that has moved in, however, this is not going to happen.
The chickens will eat well tonight.
