Thursday dawned early and busy. After sending Honey Do off to work I went through a few books on homesteading. Trying to decide how much I want to do and where to start if I go that route. My interest in it started from researching Pinterest on emergency preparedness and just went in several directions from there. I also want to put in a bigger vegetable garden, or a second one, and I've been finding some really good tips.
From there, I put up 14 cups of the vegetable stock I told you about yesterday.
We were gifted a bag of vegetables. There was kale, which we don't care for and that started the stock. I included scraps I'd collected from the freezer, along with celery leaves from the celery that was also gifted. I let it simmer all evening and cool over night so I could put it in the freezer Thursday morning.
Honey Do and I visited the garden after dinner Wednesday. Things have really slowed down and he doesn't want to loose the ghost peppers we are leaving on the plant. It has gotten much cooler, but no frost yet. It will happen in the next two to four weeks so we are keeping a very close watch on weather reports.
I did pull out the cabbages that were left. They are starting to rot and split, which means their growing season has ended.
I spent time the rest of the day purging/organizing my overflow pantry, laundry and working on Ms. Pam's quilt. It's coming along beautifully :)
Thanks for stopping by,
Wishing you a day filled with creativity and productivity.
