Homestead Update

6 Sep


The garden is almost finished for the season, we are picking the final tomatoes and cantaloupes.


We went to the Farmer’s Market and bought some nice fresh Okra and Vidalia Onions. Sweet Thing used our Tomatoes and the Okra and Onions to make some delicious Okra and Tomatoes. This dish is so good I’ll bet even Pioneer Preppy would like it!


I hooked up my disc and worked up a spot in the back and planted 4 different winter greens. We will pick what we want and leave the rest for the deer to eat this winter.

I bought a piece of culvert to go into the gully in the middle of the homestead. As things are now, we have 16 acres of woods in the back and the only way to get there now is on foot. After I get the culvert installed, we can go to the woods on the tractor or the ATV. I expect we will spend more time back there when it gets easier to get to. More to come.
