October is finally here!!!!
My favorite month, in my favorite season.
I have had a great start to the month, and I hope that you have too!
I haven't had much time this year to work on any new farming skills, and I wasn't able to garden this year, but I have big plans for next year, and I still planning on widening my knowledge and being as self-sufficient as possible this Fall and Winter, starting with the harvest.
So as a start to my October, the twins and I went apple picking.
We ended up picking 105 lbs of apples, although 30 of those went to the restaurant, and 10 or so I gave to my mom, so I have about 60 lbs left to use for sauces, and rings, and pie filling.
Now I just have to figure out how to make room for all of the canned goods I will be making.
I also was able to spend some time on my boss' farm, learning to drive a tractor, and playing with chickens, and I finally was able to break in my boots.
