Great Pyrennes Puppies

We are pleased to announce that Boaz and Josie are expecting puppies.  You can see photos on their last litter on our web site.  We are really excited as the pups from this pair are always exceptional.

The garden activities have slowed down. The kitchen is now my “headquarters.” I finished canning grape juice and have frozen gallons of tomato sauce.  Today, I will begin baking the Butternut squash for freezing. Maybe I can get to the apple sauce too. It feels like fall and I am ready to be finished with […]

Grape Juice

Today, I will be canning grape juice.  My hands will be busy. My heart will be somewhere else. Today, I will be praying. I do not like what is happening in the world right now. It seems to me to be like a very large pot of hot water about to boil over. My sympathy […]

God and The Bible

George Washington said, ” It is impossible to RIGHTLY govern a nation without God and the Bible”.  This is so true! There is wisdom in every word.

Hanging Herbs

I am hanging bunches of Herbs from the kitchen ceiling today.  Basil, Sage, Oregano, Parsley, Thyme, and Tarragon, will make the whole house smell wonderful! I cook with herbs a lot. It is handy to have them hanging in the kitchen.

It Feels Like Fall

The leaves are turning, the wind is blowing, the kraut is krauting, the sauce is saucing and I love fall! The big orange pumpkins have been hauled in from the garden and tomorrow we pick grapes.  It feels good outside. Time to get out the sweat shirts and hoodies.

Chicken coop and Bunny Hutch really clean

This morning, the chicken coop is clean–really clean. New straw is down and the old straw and poop are out on the compost pile. The bunny hutch is clean–super clean. New straw is in the nesting boxes. No, I did not do this clean up job. We are blessed to have a young man work […]

Love this!

Ezek. 34:16 And will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick.   God is so able to do this.  Let Him.

Tomato Monday

Today is officially “Tomato Monday”. There are many, many, five gallon buckets of Brandy wine and Amish Paste tomatoes lined up on my back porch. Bob picked and picked and picked.  Some of the Brandy wines weigh over 2# apiece.  Today is the day they graduate into tomato sauce. All four burners on my stove […]

Minnesota State Fair

We visited the Minnesota State fair yesterday. People are more interesting to look at than the exhibits. I am a “people watcher”.  For a while, we sat on a green bench and watched people. My observations were not all positive. Most of the people we saw were wolfing down  ultimate forms of JUNK. Foods that […]
