life

A week or so ago, an old friend of mine posted as his Facebook status, "I think that people who take the time to log onto Facebook and post something about "how busy they are" are probably not as busy as they think they are."

I hope you understand that my absence from blogging is because I'm busy, and too busy to get on and blog about how busy I am. There are days when I don't even get online, days when I don't dare sit down at the computer because I can't pull myself away from catching up and the other stuff on my list is just more important. Five kids keeps me on my toes, but I choose to live this way so I have no complaints.  read more »

Filling The Hollow Tree

I updated the Hollow Tree in my sidebar...I decided after 36 pints of beans, plus what I still have from last year, I was finished. So I pulled the plants up and put them in the compost pile! I also harvested all my carrots and onions. This is the year I will clean up my garden before the winter comes. Cross my heart.

feasting

Though we rarely see them,
We know when they've been here.
The unripe fruit goes missing;
They're very hungry deer.

Who says 2 is too young to help?

Who says 2 is too young to help?

This kid just barely turned three and she is quite a good helper around the kitchen already. She can help grind cucumbers for relish, or apples for applesauce, help put dirty dishes in the sink when I wash, set the table all on her own, and sort laundry by color.

Relish the thought

Relish the thought

Who would have thought that just a few cucumber plants would yield enough for 7 quarts of pickles, 17 half-pints of dill relish, and an upcoming batch of sweet relish? As weary as I am of taking care of the harvest, it makes me just a tiny, tiny bit sad that the vines are starting to wither and turn brown. Fall will be here before we know it!
