So much for cord cutting on this homestead I guess :o(
I've been canning sweet potatoes. I'm such a wimp. I have blisters on my hand from peeling the potatoes! And I bought some 120#.....I have blisters after only 20# peeled and cut up :o( Some pioneer homesteader, I know. LOL
The children and I headed north to Tennessee Monday morning. We visited with Sister Linda, up in Linden and had a wonderful time. We'll definitely be making another trip...and take her into town so she can show me all the goodies a Plain community has to offer :o) The area around there is absolutely beautiful. Maybe north Mississippi isn't our home place and south Tennessee is :o)
I have a ton of photos on the phone to transfer over, but not tonight. I still have potatoes to finish canning and I'm absolutely beat and want to go to bed.
Homestead projects in the plan here:
- canning more sweet potatoes
- planting berry bushes
- planting asparagus
- planting onion sets
- tilling and prepping remaining garden areas for the year. I have a lot to do -- bringing in fertilizer, tilling, prepping a couple of raised beds for carrots and beets at least.
- running more fencing for a larger pasture area for the goats
- finish sealing up barn room -- replacing a couple boards on the outside wall, some new planking in loft to seal up 'roof' in the room
