Thousand Flower Farm is located on Waldron Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. We grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers, raise sheep, weave rugs and knit hats for sale mainly in Friday Harbor, WA on nearby San Juan Island.
Halloween has come and gone. With no kids around the place we don't do much to celebrate and there is no trick or treating here. But we do have a tradition of carving 3 pumpkins and putting them out at the end of the driveway at dusk with candles in them. They're just for anyone driving by.
This is followed by Halloween tradition #2, roasted pumpkin seeds. We get this treat just once a year and so we enjoy it while it lasts. We clean the seeds from the pulp and put them in the oven until they are crispy. Some friends add a bit of oil and salt or herbs. I can't believe it but we've already eaten about half of them.
