Doodads — pumpkins by day, moons and tree silhouettes by night

Yesterday I visited my favorite farmer and bought this and that. The pumpkin harvest is in. They were selling empty crates for $5 but I had no way to get them home. The crates would be perfect for composting.

Two nights ago I went outside just as darkness was falling.  The moon has been so bright this week.  I also snapped a few pictures of the trees.  I like the way the phone camera takes night shots.

    These crates really would make great compost bins. Isn’t there a way to get them delivered to you?

      Too far away. I’m working on getting a trailer hitch on my car, which means I can buy a small trailer, so when these deals come up I can nab them 🙂

    I was thinking about those crates as compost bins too. I might have to go visit my local pumpkin farmer and see if he has any spares.

    Wonderful light in these. I like how the horizon glows. My camera usually doesn’t pick up the stars (planets, really) either. (K)

      The moon was so bright, like a spotlight, again last night. I should have gone out there. Maybe tonight, if it’s bright again.

        I don’t go out, but it wakes me sometimes shining on my bed.

      So those are planets I can see near the moon? I wish I knew more about the night sky.

        I’m always googling what’s visible in New York near the moon. Right now it’s Saturn and Jupiter that I can see. If you use your zip code, sometimes you can find information that way too.

    Pumpkin crates. Neat idea. Do you carve yours?

      I don’t carve the pumpkins, I buy small decorative ones and sit them together. Nothing fancy just a tradition. Do you buy pumpkins and carve them?

        Oh, yeah. Have for years. I buy the small ones, too. I love this time of year. I had some fun last year:

          Cute! We used to carve them when the kids were little. Now that I have a granddaughter maybe the tradition will be revived.

    nice photos! The pumpkins remind me of Octobers back in Ontario. Has been unseasonably cool for two or three days here , so the sky is clear and the moon and stars were quite bright last night I noticed.
