Started my day with my homemade Canadian bacon & a couple of duck eggs that my lil' friend down the road gave me. Yummy!!!

Harvested more spaghetti squash, then started processing it.
Them duck eggs are hard to beat. I bet that Canadian bacon goes down easy also.................................

Refilled the redbird feeders & put out new seed blocks. Also cleaned/refilled their water tub.

Harvested more tomatoes & spaghetti squash (it's been a very good year for them).

Vacuum packed the spaghetti squash that is already done, then continued processing more of them.

Gave 8 spaghetti squash & some tomatoes to our neighbors.

Took down 2 pair of window shutters which are badly oxidized. Time to try something new to refurb them.
