The other day I made 15.5 pints of salsa and 10.5 quarts of pickles. I should be canning more, but am outside racing against Mother Nature. She is spitting snow on me this morning. It isn't sticking, but it hit me in the eye. Nice.
Wednesday night no work was done. Papa Doug and Granma Claudia stopped by for a couple of hours for their bi-yearly brief visit. They are on their way back to Oregon.
I take photos of the kids almost every morning. I want to make a 180 Days of School scrapbook. I think I've spaced 3 out of 18 days so far.
Picked another batch of carrots. I wish everyone would eat them. I am going to shred and freeze, but I wonder why. Never even used up last years. There is still one more bed to pick. I don't think I should plant so many next year.
I am working at cleaning, but sometimes fun or life trumps work. Last night I watched the Packers play and visited my niece. Tonight Elijah has football. Oh my it is going to be cold sitting in the stands. I took this shot yesterday after I had already done a bunch of work. Stay tuned for the finished shot.
These are 20 foot beds....too much!
Finished mowing the lawn yesterday as well. Still need to do the ditch and then I want to try out my aerator thing I got that goes on my rototiller.
Here's my horseradish. I am leaving it until Spring I guess. If anyone has experience I'd appreciate you telling me what to do. All the Internet information is confusing me.
Beautiful. Wish it stayed like this far a couple of months. Fall goes very quickly here.
I had Geraniums to give away. Even offered to deliver them, but didn't have any takers. I don't have any windows so I'm just going to put them in the compost bin.
I've been trying to take before and after photos. Progress stopped here. Homer actually (shock) took a couple days off of work. He said it was "to get some things done around the house". The reality is he just took my 4-wheeler and went hunting with Cody. I cleaned the vegetable beds the hard way using a wheelbarrow, but this area is too far from the compost bins. It will have to wait until my 4-wheeler comes back.
Millie is right at my side the whole time.
