Daily Farm Update

Friday September 7th 2012

This has been one long day. Mine started about 4:30 and it seems as if it has been nonstop  all day. What started out as a normal late summer morning has went down hill fast as the rain clouds move in. We will not complain about rain though as it has become a precious resource of late.

I managed to get a batch of watermelon rind pickles on to soak overnight. It is a three day process and I will continue to work on them in the morning once they soak for 24 hours. Taking plenty of pictures and I will do a post on it with the recipe sometime next week. 

Also got a dehydrator full of sliced potatoes on. They will take about 12 hours so so I will let them run overnight and package tomorrow. 

Also hoping to start on turkey butchering tomorrow if the weather cooperates.   

I had hoped to shampoo the dogs today but I guess that is a chore for another day. 

Supper tonight is sliced potatoes and onions and venison.  Baby O loves it just cooked in a black iron skillet together until crisp. We are using the potatoes that we happened to hit with the potato fork while digging them yesterday. We know they won't keep and that is a good way to use them quick. We will also finish off the cornbread from yesterday and leftover cherry pie. And maybe a bowl of watermelon before bed : )

Life is busy but blessed here in The Holler!

Have a safe and wonderful weekend .......
