In my kitchen pumpkins and carrots are garden gold. I just love this time of year. The harvesting and processing of our garden produce. I find it very fulfilling. I think I was born to be a farmer deep down inside.
These past two weeks have been extremely chaotic (to put it mildly) in my kitchen. I felt like a three ring circus juggling ripening fruit, kids lunches for school and getting dinner on the table at the end of day. I felt overwhelmed at times but plowed through anyway. I've kept a few late nights (much later than I would like - not a night owl). In the end I am grateful for the sacrifices made on everyone's parts as we helped each other in our yearly quest to expand our food storage.
