Fiona,

That pumpkin pie looks fantastic ! But I have to wait until I'm full of turkey, stuffing, mashed taters, hot biscuits, cranberries, etc, before the pies. 4 days off !! Eating, watching football, and working on trees. Can't get any better than that ! Thankful is what I am !

Happy & Safe Holidays Everyone,

Ed Trout

Bloody unfair... We could sure use a nice holyday like that to lighten up the dark, wet, windy, soggy, depressing, dull, boring, pale and sad swedish autumn, did I mention dark, wet and windy? Now you got me hungry as well... mashed taters... turkey... stuffing... hmm, maybe got a piece of hard swedish rye bread somewhere and some pickled herring if I'm lucky....

I only tried it once, never again... like John said, it's fermented for Gods sake! It's more common in the north of sweden where they also drink their coffee with salt... Smile

Your pumpkin pie went quite well with my turkey and dressing. And we had whipped cream on top!

Well , I'm back from the 5 day Thanksgiving holiday. Our family did quite well, no one killed any one, which always a big plus.

My wife works in a large grocery store. She said we were very lucky to have canned pumpkin pie already on hand. Del Monte (I believe) has their tractors buried in the mud and the pumpkins are rotting in the field. Her store (and the others as well) have sold out of pumpkin with no idea when more will be available.

We may have to resort to rading local pumpkin patches and making pies for Christmas from scratch.

Otherwise, thanks to our brothers and sisters across the pond for the kind best wishes.

Fiona, I'll take another slice of that pie you made, if it's still available! cyclops

I go most of the year pumpkin pie free, but for November and December, its all on for the PP.

LAter,

Jay

Key Lime and Lemon Meringue you could PM a slice of either one and I would be in heaven!

Something to do with bonsai... HMMMM!

I'm 6 screws away from completing the cold frame. Once done, I'll resurrect the thread and put up more photos. All the trees are in it, but we haven't been much below freezing until this week. Supposed to get to 21*F Wednesday night. I still have to install the heater. If I put the temperature controlled outlet high enough it should keep the bottom trees at a proper hybernating temperature while allowing the the less hardy trees to stay just above freezing.

There is still a little room for some more trees, should the forest grow more next year.

All the tropicals are either at work or in the basement.

Next project, installing the automatic watering system in the basement.

I do however, have some Key Lime Pie you could have.

Key Lime Pie -- in Scotland????

Where, pray tell, do you get the key limes -- they ARE different from "limes" you know.

That is true, but my brother-in-law made his key lime pies this year from the big limes I picked off my tree. Nobody could tell the difference! Don't lnow what kind of limes I have. They turn yellow almost like a lemon when ripe.

I don't know what your electric power rates are like, but the cure for long, dull, dark winters is to grow tropical bonsai under fluorescent or HID lights. Jack Wikle has been doing it even longer than I have.

I go to visit my pal who has a SAD light. Works wonders and without the worry of skin/suntan problems! But I believe in a past life I must have been a creature that hibernated as it sounds like a darn fine idea to me.
