A few weeks ago I had ordered some Baby Golds from the Amish bulk food store. They came in last Monday, ended up with two bushel. We really like the Baby Golds, but they are so much harder to can. I ended up just peeling them like an apple and cutting them off the pit.
This weekend my husband helped me clear out some of the garden, with all of the rain the weeds got away from me. We dug the rest of the potatoes and got just a little over 1/2 bushel out of our six rows, not a good year for them. Did talk to the Amish lady that has the bulk food store and she is pretty sure that we can get potatoes from them. We have made the decision to put in some raised beds before next spring. We have not had any rain for a couple of weeks now, the garden soil was so hard.
I have five pounds of blue berries to freeze this afternoon and the bread dough is rising. Enjoying a much cooler day here, fall is coming. Tomorrow want to start decorating the house for fall!
Our grandsons spent the night Friday and went home after their Aunt Tammy took them out for lunch on Saturday. My husband and I spent Saturday with my dad, then after supper we went to the Waupaca County Fair. It has been about ten years since we have been to this fair. My purpose for going was to see the animals and get a caramel apple. They did not have any caramel apples, couldn't believe it! Next on my list was a flurry from the 4-H food stand, no flurries either. Did enjoy all of the animals wanted to take home a jersey calf along with the baby pigs and chickens. Someday we will have our place in the country again. We ended the evening by going to the Dairy Bar, they make the best home made icecream, we both got a maple nut cone, sooooo good! It was a fun evening! When our kids were small we spent a lot of time at this fair, my husband worked for a surge dealer and had to help milk the 4-H cows. A lot of good memories!
