Frost on the Pumpkin

We are almost two weeks out from Fall Equinox , and change is in the air.
This morning when we started chores, it was a crisp forty two.

 We are planning to greet fall with friends, and a fire I am looking forward to the gathering.
 I am trying to be patient in regards to picking and displaying the pumpkins until the celebration grows closer.
Today I picked a half dozen ear of corn,ttonight we will enjoy corn chowder.
 The corn crop is nearing an end the wind and rain from the week end made some stocks fall, many of the others have been visited by deer and worms.
