Diggin' Taters!!

Bushel basket full.. :)


We put them out on plastic and wash them and
let them dry before we store them for winter..

We usually do not dig potatos until late
September..Considering all the rain we have
had and other people digging potatos early
because they were rotting-we got ours out
of the ground..There was less than a bushel
rotten out of the 25 bushels we dug..
God is good!!

A bowl of tomatos...

I canned some tomatos today and made 9
quarts of kraut..I love harvesting the food
that we grow and storing it for winter..
God is good!!

Some rainbows that we have spotted locally..

We have had alot of rain. Having had several years
of drought-we sure need it..The weather for the next
week is supposed to be hot and sunny.Lord willing,
I will be canning tomatos, salsa and kraut this coming
week. Then the corn should be just about ready..
We like spotting rainbows after storms...And I am
thankful that we know the promise God made when
he set the rainbow in the sky... And all of his other
wonderful promises...He will never break his promises...

Football Season!!

Well it's that time of year again.. I really like football.
Just not when my boys are playing it.HAHA
-Makes me nervous... Since my oldest is playing
highschool ball this year-his practices have been
4-5 hours...My jr. high son only has a 2 hour practice..
(Of course these are everyday..) My 9 yr. old may not
play this year(youth club)-there are not
enough boys signed up yet.. So he is planning on
getting in more hunting time... They all love to hunt..
You name it-they usually hunt it... They also love to fish..
I love my boys.. God has been so very good to me!!
