I've seen many but am too chicken to actually go up in one. The festival sounds fabulous! How many balloons usually come? I've been to a few festivals that had around 50 balloons. I love the different colors and shapes.
I feel you! I used to get pretty sad when this time of year rolled around. Now I get excited! I switch out all of my outside decor to my fall decor. I change the flower beds, using mums, pumpkins and gourds.
We have already had an abundance of tomatoes, peppers and onions. I'm going to be making stewed tomatoes, spaghetti sauce and canned tomatoes with onions starting tomorrow. I can't wait. Anyone else have a lot of crop already?
That is something I have never heard before either. Why would watering something change the flavor? If we don't water things, they die (heat has been crazy). I am going to try this next season and compare the flavor.
We are in a similar situation here. The lots are bare and prices are high! We just put an order in for a new truck. The cost of uses trucks is crazy! Almost as high as a new one. We leased a vehicle years ago.
Still nothing. I was hoping that by just tossing the rotten gourd in the ground it would work. I'll try to dry the seeds this year and give that a go. We go all out for Fall decorating, it would be nice to grow our own.
