I can't believe its almost the middle of November already--where does the time go??
Harvesting/canning is done for the season, and our first Arctic Air and hard freeze is to come tonight. We've had a couple of frosts, but by the house the yellow cherry tomatoes are still growing, so I picked them all earlier this afternoon.
It's nice to slow down a bit with the colder weather coming. Yet it provides its own set of challenges....tank heaters, extra food for critters, etc. Each season has it's perks and downfalls!
Got my beef broth dehydrated, next time I will use the oven. It took days in the dehydrator! But it has awesome flavor, and was a good experiment. I still have some more "soup bones" in the freezer and oxtails to use for the next batch. :)
Pat and I haven't been doing too much other than the routine day-to-day stuff. Kyle hasn't been down in awhile and I am looking forward to seeing him and his girlfriend at Thanksgiving. He called today and got his free Military Dinner at Golden Corral today for Veterans' Day.
At Christmas I am hoping everyone will be here, even if for a little while! We'll have our Thanksgiving Dinner when I can get everyone rounded up at Christmas--at least that's my plan!
Nessa's baby is small, and it was moving around quite a bit yesterday. Her pins are slowly loosening up, and her udder is growing more. I expect a baby anytime between Thanksgiving and New Years'....her due date is actually December 18, but being a heifer, she could easily swing 2 weeks early or 2 weeks late. So time will tell......
And that's the quick update for now!
