End of Summer
The end of summer is in the air. The nights are getting cool and the mornings here are down right nippy. The pressure is on to get all my fleeces washed and dyed and I am feverishly trying to be ready to go to Rhinebeck this October. Getting Ready for Rhinebeck , the New York State Sheep and Wool festival, really begins about a month after the last show , but now its crunch time and my dye pots are seldom cool.
I did harvest and dry a gorgeous garlic crop as well as a large amount of herbs and our last honey harvest will be this week. Its been a wonderful summer ..our freezer is full of baked goods and dehydrated vegetabes and I even managed to try my hand at some old fashioned half sour crock pickles this year. They turned out terrific . Our hens are producing wonderful eggs . They love running after and catching bugs in the late summer grass and I love watching them.
