Apple Pandowdy

Another day of canning.  I went down and picked the beans in the kitchen garden and got my basket almost full and then we went to the lower garden after breakfast and got a few more.  There are not many there as the deer do get in and eat them as fast as they can grow and no matter what we do they still get in.  They don’t bother the other things but they will go through barbed wire and all the lacing I can string and still they eat the beans.  We did get 13 pints canned so I guess I can’t complain.  We will keep these beans for when we come home in March, we can our beans in pints as that is all we eat at a meal and do Becca’s in quarts as her family is bigger.  Then I got the corned beef out and turned the meat in the crock and took one piece to cook for tomorrows dinner of corned beef and cabbage and we will have the left overs in Ruben sandwiches the next day.  And then I made an Apple Pandowdy and it came out great so that will be our dessert for a couple days. 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.
