This weekend we harvested half of our potatoes and all of the onions . They are now safely tucked away for the long upcoming winter. The weather has been a bit strange here and not at all very fall-like, we have been having very nice warm weather (80’s to 90’s) with a few cooler days thrown in once in a while and no frost. That was until this morning when we awoke to a thick coat of frost. I need to get out and see what is salvageable from the green tomatoes and get them inside and eventually we will have to put the garden to bed and start the dreaming/scheming process over again for next spring. The weather looks very promising for the next week though.
Still have a bit of canning to do, we have been saving strawberries for the whole month of September so we want to make some strawberry rhubarb jam. We also need to make some pumpkin butter and apple butter and I hope to can some black and kidney beans. We sent the last pig to be processed last week and we should be able to pick it up sometime soon! Then when the weather gets a bit cooler we have a couple of sheep that will be headed to freezer camp and some turkeys that will follow. Then of course we have hunting right around the corner which is all Sawyer can even think of! Lots of stuff to keep us busy.
Saturday night I combed Teigen’s hair straight up and he thought it was so funny and wanted me to take a picture of it…
Hope everyone’s enjoying this last day of summer!
