Halloween Pumpkins Here They Come

No doubt, when its Halloween, you see pumpkins all over the place. Many people carve their creativity and style in pumpkins. I saw ton of different halloween decorations this year, some turning their front yard into cemetery theme, others share their habitat with huge spiders and web, some have faces and monsters greeting visitors and passersby, while others have the glowing appearance of pumpkins all over the place. So far, the only halloween decor I saw that I took a picture of this year is a parade of pumpkins we saw at the mall here in northern CA, see photo above. Happy Halloween!

Early Girl Tomatoes

At the start of spring time this year, my hubby and I decided to grow some vegetables in our backyard, so that we have something to harvest and use for cooking in the kitchen.

Usually, we just buy a piece or two of tomato in the grocery store when we have plan to use it in our next meal. But there are times that we have quick fix meals and/or unplanned meals that sometimes need this and that, ingredients like tomatoes, and we usually don't have it stock in our refrigerator because most fruits and veggies that are bought in the store don't have a very long shelf life. In a matter of days, they are already rotten, and we have no choice but throw them away, and its a waste of money!

That is why we decided to plant some Early Girl tomatoes in our backyard last spring. And we been harvesting huge red tomatoes from it ever since! We really like the taste of Early Girl tomatoes because it is so sweet and juicy as well, and they are shinny healthy red. These days, when we need tomatoes in our cooking, all we have to do is step outside and pick some from our garden. Oh, we don't use any spray or pesticide, so we know that it is safe to eat!
