Bring on the holidays!
Peach preserves, apple butter, applesauce, spiced applesauce, dill pickles, bread and butter pickles, green beans and now mincemeat are all canned and sitting on the shelves ready for eating, gifts or Thanksgiving pie!! Bring on the holidays I am ready to enjoy and be thankful for all the blessings we have received this year!! Unfortunately Thanksgiving may have to be rescheduled at home due to Michael being asked to fly to Kauai as his buddy Scott's trainer (he fights in the MMA rings)....I feel so sorry for my husband who has to fly to Kauai!! Not....it was our favorite island on our honeymoon, I am so jealous!! It is just as well as we will be busy putting on the dinner at the church, and I so love that day!! By far one of my favorite of the year, and a little rescheduling is not unusual for this farm/EMS family after all these years. Life always works out for the best as in the last few days I have been fighting a head cold so I have been poking around the kitchen cleaning and finishing up the canning chores looking forward to having more energy right when it cools down on Monday and enjoying every minute of planting dill, cilantro, lettuce, bok choy, radishes and more kale!! Tomorrow I am picking up a couple of straw bales and finishing off a larger compost pile, and I think I will just plant my Fall potatoes right into it and see what happens. I have some sliding glass doors to throw over it for the winter. My favorite part of gardening is waiting to see "what will happen next"....there is always something new to learn and look forward to!! Moonstruck signing out.
