Harvest Overflows to US!

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Hey guys,

We received 3 big boxes of slightly bruised

or damaged celery, a big box of Ohio apples,

a 50 pound bag of carrots, a bag of fresh

corn and some potatoes!

All free!

My mom has chickens and goats as well

as other farm animals and was given overflow

that the food banks do not want.

It took us 10 hours to clean and

cut//blanch/freeze the goods.

The issue with the renter is minor

just need him to clean n repair

more.

We had our anniversary this last week

and at was 14 years married.

We are going to a country music

concert at the end of the month to see Luke Bryan

and I delivered her a cake with 14 on it lit as

well as some marigolds yellow and put by her bed.

She was happy and looks forward to her VIP night

later with Luke Bryan as she can not Waite to meet him.

Lastly the reason I am actually on SP to report my

weight/loss/gain/exercise.

I got the entire FAM together and we walked about 45 minutes

at Slate Run Metro Park here near Columbus.

I speak of this park a lot. We love the farm and the animals.

I carried weights and a band to help workout

my shoulder so I did not have to work out again

once we got home. The walk/some jog was fun and

I was able to get my cardio on.

    I love free food. I don't know what I would do with that much celery but I love apples, carrots, corn, and potatoes.

Happy Anniversary. It sounds like it was a good one!

Keep up the good work!
