The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up 129

"The moon cast their black shadows on the ground where the pumpkins lay naked above their withered leaves... All the other pumpkins Almanzo rolled into piles, and Father hauled them to the barn. The best ones were put in the cellar to make pumpkin pies, and the rest were piled on the South-Barn floor."
~ Laura Ingalls Wilder, Farmer Boy
