I can not believe the time is moving so fast this year! Where has the year gone? It seems like only yesterday we were getting ready to plant and now we are slap dab in the middle of harvest season.
I have had several friends ask where have I been and what have I been doing! Well as I have said many times the Farm never sleeps! As any farmer knows when you plant, you do it all at one time, then everything comes in at one time! I have been as busy as a bear in a honey factory right before hibernation.
I will say everything is kind of crazy around here! Not that most people would notice!
I did however want to take time to give everyone some idea of what I was doing so I am including some pictures of some of our treasured blessings.
I have put up so far more than 75 quarts of squash and I could not say how many we have shared with family and friends.
I have put up 58 quarts of okra so far,,plus sharing.
These have just started coming in...Still trying to eat my share of these beauties.
Still trying to get over the nightmares of the :Jolly Green Giant" coming after me! I have put up 115 quarts so far and shared many buckets!
With all th rest still got 94 quarts of butter beans put up and shared plenty.
We got more than enough potatoes for a salad or two. 25 bushel I do believe!
I have no clue how many onions we got..never stopped to count them Only know they are good.
The carrots may not be the pretties, but they sure are sweet. I got 20 bags in the freezer and we have eaten quite a few already right out of the garden.
My favorite beets. I have put up 45 quarts of beets, we have eaten some several times and shared probably twice that many!
Am I finished. Heavens NO! Still have plenty of everything in the field, plus more coming on. The corn,watermelons are really growing,peanuts, and never fear everytime one thing gets finished...something else is planted right back in it's place!
Like I said the Farm never sleeps.
Even the sugar cane is growing and doing great.
It will be ready the last of October. and let's not forget in about a month we will be ready to start picking cotton!
Now outside all this I do find time to play with Phillip,sit on the porch with my Dh when he comes home once a week, and I enjoy my walking time,we get our time in the pool and I really try to log into Sp at least once a day!
Please always set your goals. You can do them! This is your life! Life is good and will bring you plenty of joy and happiness!
Have a great Week end!
Thank God I'm a Farm Girl!
