Thankful Thursday


A bounty of peppers from a neighbor, that I will freeze, ensures many fajitas and skillets of pepper steak through the winter. 

Like a good neighbor, a farmer is there......

"Let us not forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man.  When tillage begins, other arts follow.  The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization."  

Daniel Webster

  2. We picked our last basket of peppers yesterday and I will cut the plants down. It has been a horrible year for tomatoes but peppers did good for some reason.
