So here we are at the tailend of Summer and I'm wondering what everyone has been up to
Anything FUN, anything NEW, anything EXCITING?
I've been canning and freezing veggies and fruits from the garden. I need to get Onions into the dehydrator, we had a VERY good crop of Walla wallas this year, best ever
We've stayed pretty close to home this Summer, we've only taken day trips (except for the drive to Utah for my Dad's Memorial ), we've gone to the Desert and the Coast. Maybe next weekend we'll do a day trip to the Mountains to check on the Elderberries and hopefully my guy will catch us a couple trout.
I'm starting on Solstice gifts, knitted lace washclothes, scarves, gloves, Beeswax candles and soap. We've started our Honey harvest and it's only so so, because the Bees went through a SILLY SEASON of swarming, so we don't know if we'll be giving Honey as gifts (I'll probably hoard it all...mine, mine, all mine
So, come on...whatcha' all been up to?
