We went to the garden today and dug up some cold potatoes! We usually leave the potatoes in the ground as long a s we can, but try to get them out before the ground gets too cold and freezes them. Last year we lost a few because they were too close to the surface and froze. Thankfully our cold nights and mornings we've had lately hasn't hurt them yet.
After digging potatoes, we went to Kroger's. We were greeted by this sign outside the store.
Well you know me, if it's free, I'll take a few. If you enlarge the picture, you will notice it says "Free to a good home," I thought that was cute. I took three big ones and put them in the car before going in to do some shopping. I'm glad I got them before going inside, because when we came back out they were all gone! Someone else had the same idea as I did. In my opinion pumpkins can be used for outside decoration until Thanksgiving.
Before leaving Ripley, we stopped at Farmer's Feed and got 5 lbs of raw peanuts for the squirrels. They were $1 a pound, and we didn't think that was too bad of a deal. Now if I can just catch them in the act, I'll take some pictures to share with you.
I was good, though, and when we stopped at Fruth Pharmacy to get milk, I never bought any of the 90% off Halloween items. Nor, did I purchase any of the 75% off Fall items.
A person has to draw the line somewhere.
Have you got any good deals lately?
