A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

Yesterday's Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie, whose aromas filled the house with scents of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves was a bit of a bust. The flavor was definitely there and the streusel topping added lots of crunch, but the filling, rather than being creamy like a pumpkin custard, was a bit loose and watery. I give this recipe an overall 2 stars. In my opinion, it's difficult to top the good old favorite - just plain ol' pumpkin pie!H and I cut down a dead cedar tree over the weekend to split for kindling this winter. After H had it down and cut into rounds, we carted it over to the splitting stump. H was going to wait til tomorrow to split the rounds, but he couldn't wait - this fella just can't stay away from his wood pile!
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
