This has been another busy day. We started out butchering roosters and making tomato juice, and while I cut up the roosters the boys worked on their projects. We also picked apples and made applesauce, and the boys helped their daddy cut off the rest of the cornstalks from the garden and bring them home; we’ll husk the corn tomorrow.
Now it is tomorrow; I didn’t get this finished last night. So, I’ll add the pictures and try to get it posted today!
Boy # 2 is working on building a workshop to store his tools in, in this picture.
The base for boy #2’s sleepout.
Boy #4 working on his sleepout–a defunct freezer that served as a swimming pool for a couple of years.
And this is what the kitchen looked like!
tomato juice, applesauce and a jar of lentils to fill the canner,
vinegar, I hope,
and corn being cooked!
Gayle and the boys brought home all the corn, then picked it off the stalks and husked it.
The cows enjoyed the stalks, husks, and cobs. They would have enjoyed the corn, too, but we didn’t share.
