Canning, canning, and more canning

We have an abundance of tomatoes, beans & cucumbers on the farm right now


I spend most days parked in front of the stove, canning up a storm 

Lots of pickles (over 45 jars) bread & butter and Dill

Indian pepper relishLots of diced tomatoes

And we have been shelling beans


Don’t ask me what time, because at this moment I don’t remember


I’m really excited that fall is here, it’s my favorite time of the year and the corn stalks, pumpkins, and sunflowers make it feel even more like fall.


What also makes it feel like fall is our three pigs have headed off to the butchers (I apologize to any vegetarian or vegan readers I offend, my husband eats mostly vegan believe it or not)

I have a new project starting always with the projects, I’ve actually been doing very well finish things lately thank you very much. This new project is more of a clean up and restore


This was my late grandmothers & her mother before her, now that I own a forever home, it has come to me. Where my current sewing machine is useless and I am borrowing an older machine from a friend, I am anxious to get this one cleaned up and in working condition.

Now, here are a few of my current works either completed or in progress of being finished Another cat hat, this one for my daughter. I have enough yarn for four or five more, two of which have been spoken for and the others will make it’s way to Etsy. If you live near me and head over to the village store you will find three there, alone with apple hats, crown hats, and crowns

Here is a toddler hat that needs to have the ends weave in that will soon make its way to Etsy as well. 

Today though, I am trying to find different recipes (preferably low sugar/ sugar free) for the 40lbs of apples we picked over the weekend.
Have a great day folks!
Also remember local folks, both ducks & chickens are laying. Come on by!
