On a happy note, above with Striper The Wondercat, you can see the 12 pounds of tomatoes harvested in the garden yesterday. I have four pounds dehydrating now, and have given two pounds away, and will freeze the rest (except those we are eating now). The garden is winding down, and the weather is getting cooler. I have finished my 25 ears of corn for the freezer, and it ended up yielding 8 pounds, 10 ounces of bagged corn. We are going to do 75 more ears, and then we will have enough to eat 1 bag a week for 26 weeks. On Friday, we will be picking more blackberries. Yum!
As the garden winds down, I am turning my thoughts to my winter activities of knitting, sewing, and papercrafts. I will be spending a LOT of my time and energy on my Sharing Our Gifts Across America project, and I might have some crossover posts about it here. It is my current opus.
Though I have struggles, I have been blessed in many ways over the course of my life. I want to pass that on, and help others. I don't have excess monetary wealth to share, so I have done small volunteer activities at times, but I wanted to do something bigger. Now I have begun.
