Just What Makes That Silly Old Ant....


Two wee little men were standing in the line up at Stroms Farm Market with their Dad.  Each lad had a large wooden pumpkin mover on wheels behind them topped with what must have been the biggest pumpkin in the patch.
When their turn came to pay for the pumpkins their Dad picked up the first one (not without difficulty I might add) and placed it on the scale.  You are charged by the pound for pumpkins here.  While the transaction was being looked after the tiniest and most serious looking of the two little men wrapped his arms as far around the pumpkin on his trolley as they would go and gave a mighty heave.  It was like watching the silly old ant try to move a rubber tree plant.  Wee man number two rushed over to help.  There was much grunting and straining but eventually Dad had to take over.

  5. I stay away from places that sell pumpkins by the lb. There seems to be an over abundance this year and they are the cheapest I have ever seen. I love those different ones, white, grey, warts and all.

  6. We don't have the huge halloween pumpkins out here, just regular grocery ones and they are always sold by the kilo.
