What are you up to?






Here it is ~ almost the end of July.... summer is flying away. I just ordered Kyle new strings for his guitar. Sweetie is playing with the dogs on the front porch. Most of all I am enjoying my rare, sort of, day off. There is so much to catch up on. Bill harvested this years garlic crop. It is drying in the barn. The first round of corn has been harvested. We are working on food preservation this year. We have dried corn, carrots, green beans and a few onions. Easy to throw in to a hearty stew this winter.

We are missing Kyle tremendously. He does call when he can. It is hard on his new wife. But the time is passing, just a bit slowly for her. He will be home for his mid tour leave in September. We are all looking forward to that.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

  3. It's hard to believe 2009 is more than halfway over! I have to say, that's great you're growing your own food! sounds like a wonderful addition to stew. {:-D

  4. Sounds like a great idea since there's nothing like fresh grown food. Drying the veggies for later is going to make for some good eating later.
