Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Apple Pickin'

The other evening I went down to Mom and Dad's and picked some apples. Mom isn't quite up to apple pickin' yet, but didn't want this abundance of apples to go to waste. I rarely do much preserving or freezing, because of lack of time and freezer space. However, I was pretty sure I could give the surplus away at work.

Apples are pretty easy picking, compared to some fruits. It doesn't take long to fill a bucket or two.These will make some good pies.

Supervising Apple Pickin' is hard work--just ask Boone

The apples look yummy and on the way home from our out of town trip today I stopped by a roadside market and got some early apples, just for eating. YUM!

Boone looks like he's having a ball!

Homemade applesauce is a winter staple at our house, so it's one thing I break out the canner for. I'll can tomatoes, too, if I get enough or have a supplier. (Apples grow better here!)
