What a month!!

I knew September was going to be a little hectic, but didn't have a clue as to how crazy it would become.

It has been been more than a good reminder that one should take one day at a time and make the most of it, as one never knows what lies ahead. This will be for another post.

The other day I walked around the yard and found the most interesting growth, which I assume is some kind of fungus, on one of the railroad ties behind the pond. I have no idea what it is as I have not had time to look it up. It is very firm and I plan on watching it for awhile. I have not seen anything like this before in the yard.

The flowers continue to produce masses of blossoms. The gazanias are finally doing something. I think it was too cool and
wet during June and July for them. They are getting with it now along with the purple daisies.

Since the cabbages are maturing and we are not going to put any sauerkraut up this fall, I decided that I needed to figure out what to do with all that cabbage. So I made 26 Bierocks on Tuesday. The first time I have made these delicious little pockets filled with hamburger, onion and cabbage. Have no idea why I haven't made them before now. I was pleased with how they turned out. Didn't have time to get a photo of them sitting on the cooling racks and took this one out of the freezer this morning for its photo shoot.
I picked some sand hill plums this morning and will make some jam and I noticed the grapes were ripening. Not sure if there are enough of them yet. And I need to get that salsa going.


  1. That sure looks yummy. Your flowers are so pretty, you sure are busy on the farm, isn't Sept usually your busiest month.

  2. I don't think it has been this busy since the girls were home and we were trying to work volleyball into the fall schedule. Oct. gets rather hectic as well.
