Updates from the Homestead
Life on my homestead has been busy as always. On Thursday Tobin and I put our son Jacob on a airplane to head to
I spent a good amount of time in the kitchen yesterday. I made some cabbage soup for our dinner and then made 3 loaves of Challah bread and zucchini spice cake for dessert (I also got a lot of extra zucchini grated and in the freezer). It was a perfect meal for a cloudy, cool and rainy day. I was going to can up some of my cabbage soup but discovered my pressure gauge was loose on the top of the canner. I will see if this can be fixed.. if not it might be time for a new pressure gauge.. so the cabbage soup may be frozen.
The garden is still keeping me busy.. besides the spaghetti sauce and lacto fermented salsa that I have made, on Friday I made a few pint jars of Summer Salsa. It is a fruit and tomato spicy sweet salsa. It looks very pretty and tastes yummy. I may make some more of it. I got the recipe from The Complete Book of Home Persevering by Ball….
It will soon be time to put the garden to bed for the winter..
I am working on a quilt right now that is almost done.. I have just run out of time in a day to work on it this last week. I might get to it this afternoon.. we will see.. unless I need to do more canning.. But I really want to get my quilt project done (and share a pic with you) and move onto thinking about Christmas projects next..
The first week of our homeschool went quite well. This afternoon I need to line up the schedule for next week.
That is all the updates from my homestead! Have a blessed Sunday!!
