We worked Friday and Sunday to again prepare some more garlic beds for planting. Friday was a cold blustery day , unusually cold for NC this time of year . We even woke up to a light dusting of snow. But My husband had taken a day off from his "real" job to compost & till the beds and we had the help of two young men who said they would help so they spent most of the day light hours Friday preparing the field for more garlic.
I on the other hand spent most of my week including Friday making my Seasonings and dip mixes and making dog biscuits.Monday thru Thursday I spent peeling ,slicing, and dehydrating garlic for garlic powder. De-steming this summers peppers,and herbs . And grinding and siftting herbs ,peppers, mushrooms, and garlic . Thursday I mixed all th blends and dip mixes and picked greens for market. Friday I spent bottleing bagging and lableing all the stuff I had made .
Saturday was Farmers market for me and rest day for the guys. Usually the market before Thanksgiving is one of my best days of the year and this year it was one of the best sales day of the year.
Sunday after church my husband my nephew and myself continued working on the rows till we ran out of light.
Now I have 7 more very long rows to plant this week if the weather cooperates.
Normally we spend Thanksging in Virginia with some of my husbands family, but this year we will stay here and get as much planted as we can. I still hope to fix a Turkey and fixings for a small family feast.
I think I will post another post seperate for "Being Thankful"
Thanks for reading and spending a little time reading about or little farm
