Well, I'm sitting here with my socks on my summertime feet, a shawl over my shoulders, and a cat on my lap as I wonder how long we'll hold off turning on the furnace. Maybe we can make it through this cool spell and on to another week of warmer weather. I know the neighbors already have their furnaces but as I've mentioned so often before, my garden neighbors are elderly and the others have newborn baby so they all need to shelter more.
Now that the nights are below 30 degrees, we've closed windows and will have to go through and get all the storm windows closed for the season.
I'm getting kind of anxious to get done with the preserving season. I've hauled in as much as I can from the garden ahead of the killing frosts and now have to actually do something with it.
Here are some photos from my mess to commiserate with Sharon
Some of the tomatoes
A bucket of dried corn
Jars waiting for me to get color ink and label them. Yes those are clothes on a rack in the background
And a fresh look at the chickens.
