I cooked all day.  I had tomatoes that needed to be taken care of or I would lose them but not enough to can so I made a large tomato sauce for dinner along with the green peppers from the garden and two onions and some chicken.  Then I cooked up all the small butternut squashes.  I got enough for four or five meals and I fried up a large batch of green tomatoes.  I now have enough vegetable to last through the week end.  I got a three dish crock pot two weeks ago and I love it.  Now I can take three of these extra vegetable and just put them in the crock pots and not have to rush about cooking them each day.  I also have some green beans and will get more tomorrow.  There is not enough to bother canning and we really don’t need more cans so we will have lots of vegetables each day for dinner.    Norman took down three more tomato rows and put the poles up for next year.  Still had four rows to go but will let some of those tomatoes ripen as they are still going well.  Tomorrow I need to burn again, there is quite a pile of brush to burn and the old dead tomato plants.  We like to burn the old plants and not compost them as composting does not kill the bugs and eggs and burning does.   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.
