Learning from square one how to do things from scratch. Canning, recipes, medicinal herbs, gardening, farmette animals, and lots of family mixed in!
love the ducklings w/ mama hen! so sweet!
The tomatoes look wonderful! Such cute babies. I am in awe at how early our leaves are turning too.
Mama Hen and Duckies . . . adorable. Now that's a good mama!Yepper, we have seen coloring of the trees earlier than usual here, too. Hmmmm, what DOES that mean? Early winter, too? I don't mind a bit if it kills off all the darned garden pests over winter.
Love all the photos...and your tomatoes look awesome...I still whine to whomever will listen about pressure canners. Not sure why I just don't pull up my big granny panties and buy one of those things. Oh, maybe it's cause I'm afraid I will end up with a hole in my ceiling or worse. LOL.
Tex....you wouldn't believe how confused I have made my grandchildren....and a few adults too :-)Jill....thanks!Mama Pea....I'll take the early winter if the garden pests get killed too! bet the leaves are all down by Oct.1st instead of 31st!Sun Valley Homestead....must get a pressure canner with a jiggler and dial gauge -- I feel totally safe. Lots of the horror stories are from using pressure cookers instead of pressure canners. I love my All American canner. Just wish I had bought a bigger one! :-)
Love the pictures...and what a sweet mama hen you have to hatch out those ducks for you! :)
The sauce looks wonderful! So cute about the ducks : )
The ducklings with mama Banty are sooo cute! I have heard several bloggers talk about the early color change this year, hmmmm....
Good to see you back! I wondered what happened to you, Dr Momi!
You can never have too much tomato sauce! Or ducklings...precious little things:)
Mama Tea....this is the second year this little banty has had duck children. My duck hens were on a nest of 15 eggs and slowly one by one they were smashed. I'm wondering if there were racoons bothering them. But, my little banty came through agin :-)Michaele....isn't the sauce pretty?I keep thinking there is a lot of anti-oxidants in there!Candy C. ....I'm thinking the trees are just tired from starting out so early :-)Mary Ann....I'm overwhelmed at all my regular followers stopping in to comment after my long break. I'm feeling better and I'm even inspired these days. Thanks for missing me :-)Simply Scaife Family....I agree you cannot have too much tomato sauce! Besides, you should always have two years worth stored.Next years crop could get wiped out....We had so much broccoli and tomatoes this year I told the family we are eating chili with broccoli in it every Sunday night for the family supper :-)
Up here in western New York we have had a bumper crop of tomatoes too. What a year! We've been at our farm for 30 years too....and the leaves have started turning early! Just like it is where you live.
The ducklings are so cute following after Mrs. Hen! Mmm! I love homemade canned tomato sauces & juice. Nothing from a store can even come close.
I am totally envious of your life. First we did not have tomatoes in our area this year. Second, our trees are turning early but they have turned brown due to drought. Sounds like you had a blessed and bountiful summer.
Mama Hen and her li'l ducklings, so cute!
I have also seen signs of early fall
What a good mama hen, lucky little ducklings. The tomato sauce looks fantastic! The temperatures are dipping into the 30's this evening, it is time to bring out the quilts! Greetings from Maine, Julie.
How on earth did I miss this post! Love the sauce, & the chicks are adorable!
