Hello and Welcome!

I'd like to extend a special thank-you to Mrs. B for featuring October Farm as her Blog of the Week pick at Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom, and I would like to welcome all of her readers!

I created this blog to document my many collections (especially my witch and Halloween ones), showcase my favorite recipes and hobbies, share my gardens, and whatever else strikes my fancy! I have included links to some of my favorite posts so you can get an idea of what goes on around here.

Firstly, make sure to enter this week's giveaway by clicking here. The giveaway officially ends Friday, but a new one will also be starting on that day that will be of much interest to all of you Witchy Wenches out there! All you need to do is sign on as a follower and leave a comment to be entered.

I have a beautiful Chow-Chow puppy named Teddy who is the pip of all pups; you can meet her here.

Teddy spends most of her time in my garden. Here she is in her natural habitat just after waking up. It may be in hibernation now, but allow me to show you what it looks like in the spring, summer and fall.

I have a lot of fun with my potting table. Here it is decorated for Christmas.

My witch collection is extensive, to say the least. Here are just a few posts of what I have:

The spell books, including the original spell book from Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman.

Ouija boards and Tarot cards.

Antique candy containers, Jack-O-Lanterns and more.

Witch Plates and Pitchers

Cauldrons, as well as my potting shed and waterfalls.

Witch redware and more garden pictures


And did I mention that my garden has eyes?

Finally, here are some recipes:

Clam chowder

And no Halloween is complete without Baked Brain

I am very happy to have you visit, and I hope to have you all back again and again!

Yay for you. No mincemeat pies for the blog tech!

My gift to blogs I follow is to let them know what I love about their blogs.

Wow, don't even know where to begin with yours. It starts with you, Teddy, your beautiful garden, wonderfully warm home, fantastic cooking, interesting road trips, beautiful photographs, and goes right into shared information. That's probably the most important thing to me in the blog world--to meet REAL people. You are the most genuine and warm, spirited and ethereal person. You're tender-hearted, sentimental, artistic beyond belief, talented, and classy. I guess it's no secret, of almost 100 blogs I follow--yours is the VERY BEST, my VERY FAVORITE, and I feel like I have to check in with my dear friend every day and see what's up in her life. You are the blog-world's most charming hostess. Some day when you get a cooking/Martha Stewart type show--I'll say I knew her when she didn't realize how truly amazing she is. Keep it up!
