Hi, I'm Michelle and I write Loomis Living to share the insights and experience of living a semi-rural lifestyle. I started Loomis Living in 2008 after moving to Loomis from suburbia. I grew up on 2 acres where I learned many of the gardening, building, and crafting skills I use today. On our small Loomis farm, we have 2 orchards, a large vegetable garden, and are raising chickens. For health reasons we follow a low sodium diet, so most of my recipes are made from scratch and omit sources of sodium.
It seems too soon for the pumpkins to be turning orange. Just the other day they were a nice spring green, now they are showing signs of orange. I have strong suspicion that I may have started them a tad too early (I was just too eager to get things planted!). Now, instead of Halloween pumpkins, looks like we will have Labor Day pumpkins. I guess I could always plant some more so we will have some for Halloween too! According to Pumpkin Nook (a cool site with lots of info about pumpkins), I have another week to get the miniature pumpkins in the ground for a Fall harvest. Now, I just need to find a place to plant them.
