Welcome Fall!

September 1, 2017

Summer is rolling to a close on a million tomatoes at my place. I've made tomato juice, spaghetti sauce, salads, and salsa. This will continue until frost. The potatoes are stored in the cellar and onions on the porch (for now). Next, I will be picking apples. The wild, old tree at the pond is full of fruit this year. 

We took the first load of market lambs, 19 of them, to auction on Saturday. They averaged 128 pounds and brought $1.49 a pound. They were less than five months old, so that is great growth.

Hope you have a wonderful fall at your place!

Time to pick apples!
