Well, it truly is the end of summer! How do I know? Hubby dug the potatoes this morning. All we have left are a few tomatoes still ripening and one pepper plant hanging on. Our potato crop wasn’t near as productive as last years 14 bushel as we only got about 7-8 bushel this year. It should still be plenty to get through the winter and we have 24 quarts that we canned from last years crop (hate to see anything go to waste). Sassy helped as usual but she was also trying to catch the little rodents that have been eating the tomatoes and beans and had started on the potatoes. She is some kind of dog!! Hubby dug the potatoes alone while was cooking down tomatoes and preparing to can some barbecue sauce which I’ll post later. For now here’s a few picks of the morning work.
They’re safely tucked away in the cellar to provide us some nourishing food for the winter! The cellar shelves are full and one of the freezers is full. Now we wait for deer season and fill up the other freezer. We are so blessed!
