Fall Is Coming

Fall is coming.  The sun is setting farther and farther into the south.  Soon it will be time to compost, fertilize, and cover the beds and put the garden to sleep for the winter.

Potatoes Squash and Such

The harvest continues.  The potatoes are going to be epic.  The carrots are out of this world.  The beets just keep on doing their thing and we are SO excited to have peppers when we thought they had been completely destroyed. The Acorn Squash are amazingly tasty.  Zina weeded most of the day and I processed food.  We froze peppers, dehydrated Chillies, put carrots in the fridge, cellared squash, and made more refrigerator dills.   Oh ya, I also saved a whole bunch of seeds for next year from all of this.  What a rebel!

Tomorrow we can carrots.

The Vastness Of The High Plains

Took a drive the other day.  Looked in my rearview mirror and this caught my attention.  If you have the eyes for it, the vastness of the high plains is stunning.eternity

 

The road home took me around behind our place.  Turns out there are several homesteads back there.  One with Llamas.
