Another busy morning. I got up at 5 this morning so I could mix up some donuts. I made up three batches and set them to cool in the refridgerator until we had breakfast and went to McMinnville to get a load of horse manure. Mr Rigsby loaded us up with a nice load of aged barn cleaning and then told us there would only be two more loads as he no longer boards horses and the pile he is working on now is the end of it. We will go back twice more this month and that should finish it up. We have been getting it from him for two years now and have built up our soil well enough. We will not enlarge the gardens any more so can get along without the manure and will use the last two loads as a pile to use as we need it. If we cover it so the rain does not leach out all the good, it should last us all of next year. When we got back from there Norman unloaded the manure and I fried 5 dozen donuts and 6 dozen holes. I froze most of those but kept some out for today. Norman likes them right from the freezer. He puts one into the micro-wave for 30 seconds to have with his coffee each morning. We both finished our jobs just in time for dinner and now we will take it easy for the afternoon. Tomorrow Norman will till the garden and we will plant the fall garden. We got a little rain last night so we don’t have to water today. Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
