Five on Friday

Quote of the Day
“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”
Khalil Gibran (1883-1931);

2.  Only 80 days until Christmas!!

3.  We've had two nights in a row of frigid (like -6 degrees C) nighttime temperatures - summer is definitely over.  I hoped my sunflowers would make it to Thanksgiving but they are droopy and finished.   It's supposed to warm up a bit NEXT week - I really need to get the garden root vegetables pulled out and put away.

4.  I canned my first batch of sauerkraut this week!  I made this one all by myself for the first time :)  I will need to make one more batch so I have enough to share around the family.  My pantry shelves are getting very full!

5.  Photo of the week:

In Nose Creek Park

  1. Canning. I really need to learn how. I remember saying this last year. And the year before, as I moan re the lack of freezer space. Sigh. I still have squash out at the allotment. Maybe I should get them in too, because we are having very cold nights now. My tomatoes are ripening in the kitchen on trays!
