Sorry girls for the corn delay, but The Farm has taken over the last couple of days. We are bailing hay, combining oats, bailing straw, moving cattle and trying to keep the garden at bay. I have corn to do, saur kraut to can and re-crock, tomatos to can, pickles to make, potatoes and onions to dig.... Some people wonder why I do all this, but truth be told we live on less than $18,000 a year so its very important that I have a big garden..... no kidding - we do. The last time the Milk Man and I went out to eat alone together as a date, was sometime in the late 1990's - no lie!!! LOL The farm takes most of the cash it generates because fuel, seed, medicine for the cattle/animals and parts for machinery is SO SO SO expensive. The $ we live on is what I can make working part time and if we sell some beef cattle to locals for meat. The price of milk that you pay in the store is MOSTLY the creamry, the store and shipping being paid - we see VERY VERY little of it. Not trying to be a downer!!! Man this seems sad!!! LOL
ANYWAY!!! I will be posting today about corn for sure and hopefully the saur kraut process also. That is really pretty cool - anyone ever eaten home crocked saur kraut before?
The Weather.... .always!
