Beautiful Fall Weather!

The weather turned from cold and nasty wet to beautiful, sunny, and breezy for the next xouple of days. Just taking a break from working outside, to catch up on some coffee, writing, and email.

Yesterday, in just over 1 hour's time, I was able to ge the tiller going, till up a patch, and plant 250 garlic cloves. Now writing an article about it, which I hope to sell, complete with pix, to one of the gardening magazines. I plant garlic a bit differently than most folks, and manage to get a very nice harvest from a very small planting. Saving the details for the article, so I can't publish them here.

On Saturday we processed and canned 40 pints of home made applesauce. Dorie had done 46 pints last week, and now we have 1 1/2 bushels to go. The grandkids love it, and we do too. We use a lot of it warmed, spread on pancakes or French toast in place of maple syrup.

The main canning season is about done, but I've still got a pumpkin to do, and want to put up some pickled beets. The canner never gets put away, though, as I use it for chicken or pulled pork, or several other things when we can get them on sale.

Our pastor was just here, looking at the roof that needs replacing. He's coming up tomorrow with a couple of the guys from church to do it.

God is good!
