Rain, Rain And More Rain

After spending two weeks away from the farm I heard we had missed a lot of rain but we got to experience the rain we missed yesterday.  What was weird is that it would rain when least expected. An example would be that it was sunny and I went down to visit Lisa and while I was at her house it just began to pour.  That was the pattern of the day.  So we ran in and out dodging the rain but we managed to get the little camper and car unloaded and four loads of laundry done.  So even though it rained we still had a productive day.

We Are Back At The Farm

After a long day of driving, yesterday, we are back at the farm.  We pulled in just before dark last night and decided to just unload what we may need.  Today we will unload the rest of the car and little cabin on wheels, do laundry, and check out the farm to see what has happened around here while we were gone.  It will be a busy day getting settled back at the farm.

Returning To The Farm

Today we begin our final leg of our 3/5's GreatvLakes trip as we head for the farm.  We have not decided to do it in one day or two so we will either be back at the farm late tonight or early afternoon on Tuesday.  Only the road will decide and how well the drive goes.  Tennessee, here we come!

Rain Delay

Due to a lot of rain happening at the farm not much else has.  The rain has stopped George from doing much outside and the garden only needs harvesting every six days so i guess you could say that the farm is on a rain delay.  i guess this is mother nature's way of making sure everyone gets a break at the farm.

Farm Happenings

So, what is going on at the farm?  That is a really good question and one that I will answer in a couple of days when we return to the farm.  Until then maybe I should make something up so here it goes:
A mass landing of alien ships have landed in the garden and have started to destroy producing plants. These aliens have dusquised themselves as squash bugs and have discovered that the stems of Zucchini, pumpkin, yellow squash, acorn squash and butternut squash are delishious and can feed the whole alien nation.
And that is what is happening at the farm!

The Food Saver

A few weeks ago on Facebook I saw a video on a new product that helps protect food.  I thought it was so great and shared in on Facebook; which is the only way to save things for later. Anyway, my wonderful, beautiful, talented, charming daughter (just in case she reads this) ordered me some as a surprise and it was and I love it.  They work great and they do keep the food fresher.  This food saver is great when you need half a tomato, cucumber, pepper or onion and don't feel like cutting up the rest.  Just place a food saver lid on the other half and it keeps it fresh until you use it in the next couple of days.  She ordered them from Amazon which ended up costing less then ordering directly from the food saver site.  Thank you Jenny for the great gift.

We Have Tomato Sauce

We have tomato sauce thanks to Lisa making some the other day.  Last year we made quite a few jars but with the garden under producing this year our tomato sauce is slim.  The good thing is she will have some jars to enjoy. I know I said I would have the zucchini lasagna recipe today but I am having wifi issues so look for the recipe tomorrow or Saturday.  By postponing the recipe I have been adding up the ingredients.  We have zucchini and we have tomato sauce.  I know we can make cheese so; Lisa are you up to it?  Haha
