Saving Seeds

Our neighbor gave us a bunch of jalapeno peppers the other day.One of the things I made from them was hot sauce. I have never made this before so we will see how it tastes. Hopefully it will be good.Of course, I saved the seeds from them.I also saved seeds from these white scallop squash.I then decided to save seeds from the rampicante squash I grew this year.I decided to try making squash soup from the rampicante. I have never made it before. I always like to try new things!So I chunked up the squash and all the other ingredients. Roasted them and put them through the blender.I think it tastes pretty good. It was a time consuming job though.That’s about all for now. I hope you all have a great weekend.God bless.

She Did it!!

Congratulations to my Grace!! It has been difficult with lots of things to overcome but she stuck with it. She didn’t give up. She passed her GED and now is graduated!! Praise God! She drew this picture to mark the occasion.

Dave took this picture of her the other day at the pumpkin carving.

God bless!

Garden and More

Good morning everyone! I hope all is well with you. Things are good here. The garden will soon be finished. I will miss it a lot.

However, I am already thinking of next year’s garden. New seeds to try, different things to do.

Beans are still producing enough to eat.

Aren’t they pretty!

I cut one of the rampicante squash to bake. It was good. Grace doesn’t like winter squash much so most of this went into the freezer. I am putting this on the list to grow next year. We love it as summer squash. I want to try to grow it on the fence. It is a very aggressive grower and definitely needs it’s own space.

Peppers are still producing.

I’ve made pickled peppers

Cowboy candy, both hot and mild.

And a few bags for the freezer.

I have also been putting up more pepper poppers. We love these!

We got these apples and sweet potatoes from a local orchard. These are what they consider seconds so they are sold at a very affordable price.

Dave and I painted the roof. I am very glad to have this job done. I do not like high places.

Our neighbor had wood for us.

We worked several days on it. The wood house is now full and ready for winter!

We also worked several days on Dave’s garage.

It looks SO much better!

The kids were so excited to have the pool table set up.

I will end this post with just a few pictures for pretty.

God bless.
