Monthly Update for December

I'm just making this a year end review of the farm.  We've been so busy that even taking a few pictures seemed too much!  Our garden did very well.  I canned over 100 quarts of whole tomatos.  Close to 40 quarts of green tomato pickles (using peppers and onions from the garden).  I think around 25 quarts of green beans.  Numerous dill pickles and a freezer full of frozen habanera and jalapeņo peppers.  We had a lot of very tasty, but somewhat small onions.  We ate okra right up till frost.  I even canned a few jars of pickled okra.

Considering that I didn't use any fertilizer and could not pick every day, I think we did pretty darn good.  :-)

The critters got most of our cabbage and cauliflower. (better fencing this coming spring).

I've started to fence in what we call the 'Carol Park' area.  I'm going to have to get some before and after photos posted.  What a difference!  The area is cleared all the way to the creek and is spectacular.  Now with all the deadfall out of the way, I can keep bush hogged with little effort.

We had a great Thanksgiving at our home in Cookeville.  Several of my relatives didn't show, but we still had over twenty folks over. 

We are looking a a lot smaller Christmas this year.  "What with all the stupidity and greed going on in Washington and Wall Street".  But that is OK.  It has been a great year so far, and I have high hopes for the coming year - hope to have a few goats and possible a couple of cows in our newly created pastures.

Here are a few pictures to show our progress.

The early rains have pretty well cleaned out our creek.  On the last picture, you see where our bridge used to be.  This is going to be a major project!

Merry Christmas to all.
