The veggie patch is up and running… just in time to shut down for winter. I’ve finally got the gate up, with the little sign I made attached. Oops, I thought the board slanted the other way, so the screw holes don’t line up… oh well!

Sweet (n’ sour).

Yes, this is how I spent my Sunday evening: making pickles. Twenty jars of pickles. Dill pickles, bread n’ butter pickles, and brown sugar pickles. Some are for Christmas gifts, and some are just for Josh… who ate another two jars last night. Come to think of it, maybe I shouldn’t be facilitating that. I’m […]
