    We put out our scarecrow by the antique John Deere. Passsersby enjoy it and stop to photograph. Yesterday was a gorgeous weather day so I took my antique Moline for a drive. Had to stop several times to take pictures of wild flowers. I was sorry when it was time to drive home. Parked by the JD for a photo. I two tractors.jpg t is fun to see the two oldies posed together.

    My husband enjoys seeing your tractor pictures when you post them. He bought his first "real" tractor (as in not a glorified lawn mower) this year and is pretty proud of himself.
    What is Mr. Scarecrow wearing for a necklace?

    Scarecrow is wearing a necklace of okra. New Englanders probably don't know what that is! Our working tractor is a Kubota. What is yours, Cayuse?
    Ryan, by the time we are finished with the decorations, the pumpkins aren't good for anything. I usually toss them out in the field for the critters. The little ones are actually pie pumpkins, though.
    I toy with the idea of selling my Moline, since we don't have an antique tractor club any more. Just can't quite bring myself to let it go.

    Wow, did not know okra was available in Australia. In Oklahoma it is usually eaten fried. In Louisiana, it is used in gumbo. Our delis here all offer friend okra. I was in Arizona a couple of years ago and asked for it, and no one knew what I was talking about! I pick it when it's about 2" long and eat it raw in the garden. Also good stir fried with garden fresh squash, corn, chilies, and potatoes.

    It is cut into pieces, dipped in batter and deep fried.
    I like it fine just cut into pieces and stir friend with other vegetables from the garden--whatever is ready to harvest. I've even added black eyed peas. I use olive oil + a dab of butter keeps the spatter down and adds to the taste.
    The okra the scarecrow is wearing is very large and tough--almost ready to save the seed. Okra is in the hibiscus family; a beautiful plant.

    Marsha, I envy your tractor! You live in a beautiful area. I know okra, we eat ours fried too. When I lived in Saudi Arabia, okra was everywhere. I once mistaked a very hot pepper for okra. I took a large bite, what a painful mistake!
