Apples and Hay and Rain.....Oh My!

What a busy weekend! Friday evening was to be devoted to apple picking. We are in FULL SWING with trees ripening and needing harvested. Of course though, we could not do just that! I discovered that our hay barn roof sprung a leak so we had to move hay around before we lost it to mold :/ UGH, I cannot win with the hay situation can I?

Saturdays Farmer's Market was slower than usual. Our location was moved due to a festival they were having. However, we had two orders totaling 17 bushels that were being picked up around 5pm that day so I recruited my workers, aka Mom & Dad, and we got to picking! Meanwhile, my husband was putting a new roof on the hay barn. I swear somewhere in the distance I heard a faint "ChaChing CHA CHING" in the wind. *sigh*

Sunday was another canning day. I made some relish with the last of our peppers and onions from the garden and continued on with the pears - this time, Pear Sauce. Yummmm is it GOOD! Allen was splitting wood and made the first fire of the season in the fireplace. It smelled wonderful outside.

As if we have loads of time on our plates, I have been throwing around the ida of starting to raise dairy goats or sheep for wool. I am sure those who are experienced in these fields can tell, just by ready my statement, that I am clueless! It looks like I will be spending my winter researching!!
