Conversations about pottery...and anywhere else it takes us.

Chilly Sunday morning
Halloween is over which means that the holiday season is knocking on our door steps. We have been working at getting the piggy bank stock increased for the season. Jeff has always done the occasional fish and this week I spent some time learning to make them. I am a VERY slow fish producer. I know that the more I make, the faster I will become. The plan is to have a decent grouping of them for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters show (info in the side bar). In the meantime, I am also putting a few pigs together everyday.
Last night was our first really cold night. There was a frost warning, but I am not sure we had one here in Seagrove. I will also admit to not being up early enough to check the temperature! When I got up at 8 am it was a chilly 39 degrees. Not wanting to take chances, I brought all of my plants in last night. I finally cut down the last of the basil and set it in one of Jeff's wood fired cache pots. Today I will make pesto, then chop and freeze the rest of it with a little olive oil. There is nothing like fresh basil, but I will get some satisfaction knowing that what comes out of the freezer this winter came from our own little garden.
