It’s Been A While!

Boy, has it been a while since I posted! I am going to try to dig up some pictures from our summer to share with you.

We are just now starting our canning season. Yesterday  we canned tomatoes, apple butter, and apple pie jam. Tomorrow it’s more apple butter and grape juice. I started apple cider vinegar with our apple peels. I am following these directions from The Prairie Homestead.

Our garden got hit hard, really hard, by the deer this year. We will fence in a garden spot next spring so we can enjoy our bounty next year!

Enjoy the pics!


Some apples from our trees.


McKenzie enjoying some time in the woods while we target practice.


Breakfast on the grill last week.


Lemon Whey Pie made with the whey from our homemade yogurt.


Our late night chicken wings that we had with loaded nachos last Sunday night.


A picture of the moon that Quentin Jr. took while watching the meteor shower.

18th Buffalo Mountain anniversary hike.

Talk to you soon!

  1. Oh, those dratted deer!
    I also suffer from them. Fencing, unfortunately, is the only thing that really works.
    I often wonder why some get hit so hard by them, and then I see other’s gardens completely unprotected yet not harmed. Perhaps we need to tell ourselves that our produce must have been better!!

  2. Happy belated anniversary. That’s wonderful! Great pictures of the apples and your daughter enjoying writing in the forest. Have a great day. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!
