Back in the saddle

SERIOUSLY!!! I am trying to get better at the whole blogging thing. Currently I'm not so great remembering to blog something, but they say a habit takes about 7 weeks to be a my goal is one blog post every seven weeks, every Thursday.  I am even going to put it into my calendar with a reminder to actually post something...

Week 1 of 7

This picture is from September, and may be one of my favorite ones from the farm. Jack is probably complaining about the radish crop and I was probably in a great mood because I wasn't listening to him.

Out of this this garden we got radishes, turnips, cabbage, and mixed greens this fall. I enjoy when he is out there in his garden. I really think it's his therapy. I enjoy making jewelry, him-vegetables! Fun combo uh?

This winter we are enjoying our cold weather veggies with our dinners. No radishes were saved (my dad ate every bit we didn't sell at the farmers markets. Turnips are used in lots and lots of soups. Cabbages, what few we ate due to a lack of rain, were used immediately. And mixed greens were sold all over the county to customers and restaurants.

It is nice to know that my family is nurished with good fresh, local, raised on our farm pork and venison, and veggies we stored or canned. It allows me to have a grocery bill of around $100 a month (if I meal plan and stay creative).

Happy next few days!
