Now THAT'S a sweet potato!

We didn't get many but considering that many of them are almost this size, I'll take it!  
Add these to the 100+ pounds of winter squash and we'll be all set for our beta carotene requirements for a while!

So... I think it's time to repot the spider plant.
I'm just glad I was able to get it out without breaking the pot.  I really should be more mindful of the houseplants.  But a bunch of them are getting repotted prior to bringing them in for the winter.
I also dug a little bit of thyme to join the basil and marjoram on the windowsill. Love my fresh herbs!.

My brother has been trying his hand at making bacon!
Thursday evening he came over with a three pound slab of double smoked applewood bacon.  I sent him off with a couple of crookneck winter squash and a few late season tomatoes.
I definitely think I came out ahead on this trade!
