Frost On The Pumpkin

Heavy frost this morning, last night I covered my tomato plants which are on the deck under the eaves of the house—I think they survived—if they didn’t so be it—late September is one heck of a time to be harvesting tomatoes!

Michael worked on the shed he is building up on the hill and I quilted much of the day.  Homemade pizza for lunch then Michael headed out to get a couple used ATV tires—our Kawasaki mule has a ruined tire and new tires cost $100—we depend on that old ATV a lot—it has a dump box on the back which we use for hauling “stuff” around.  My frugal husband just could not bring himself to pay $100 for a tire for the mule which is probably almost 20 years old. 

When Michael got back we decided to take an ATV ride—kind of late in the day, didn’t leave the house until after 3pm but we went all the way to Moccasin Lake.  It is such a beautiful drive and today the sky was clear blue, the trees vivid green, the aspens starting to show a hint of gold—we both enjoyed the ride immensely on this gorgeous fall day.  We left up there just before 5pm and the sun had gone behind the mountains—thought we were going to have to stop at Robyn and Claire’s for a restorative, warm-up drink!!  Needless to say, it was a quick trip home!

We’ve entered our most favorite time of the year for living in Montana!


  1. Frost-nice:) I was just happy we did not break 90 today.

  2. I really like that last shot, next to the turkeys,... so pleasant looking.

  3. You sure do live in beautiful country.

  4. Beautiful ride! Without humidity there is such a rapid chill when that sun goes down.

  5. Howdy Janna & Mike,

    Such a beautiful country to live in, especially when the leaves begin to turn !!!! Yep, $100 for a ATV tire is a hard pill to swallow, but he probably gave $50 for the used one... You can hardly find an American-made tire, anymore... Hope Ms Emmi is doing better and y'all can have HAPPY DAY !!!!
