October Fruit

New addition to our Whidbey home has finally finaled.  Fruit of a long held desire, blessing, vision, plan, funds, contracted labor, and patience.  The County required us to remove and demolish former garage, tractor barn, storage buildings when we purchased this property for road expansion, and granted us compensation and permission to rebuild within three years.  A garage/workshop has always been one of Marshal's much pined for desires.

Desire fulfilled - now Marshal only wishes he could pack it with him for the rest of his life.

Autumn fruit from the garden.

Marshal painted this corner of the room this fall, and I have my pumpkins and squash curing by the stove, along with the two Gabe and Lydia pumpkins from a local farm patch.

Having fun photographing my "sugar pies."


Some Burgess Buttercup squash.  Maybe a Kabocha too.

Wow! Your new garage/workshop is AMAZING!!!! It's got such character! I'm sure Marshal really does want to take it with him for the rest of his life. How super that it's done!
