Just a few more shots. Still staying busy but finally summer work is slowing down. We are finished with the garden and all the "putting by" of fruit and veggies so now I can concentrate on my crafty things for a change. Looking at maybe recycling my clothes into something new for me to wear.  
But on with the photos......




We thought we would only have a couple of bushels of apples this year but we got 4 bushels. I put one bushel up into apple sauce and another into jelly. The rest we gave to 2 of the sons to use. 

This is the overflow of our pantry area. Most of this was canned this year and there are cases stored towards the back of the shelves and then you can't see but many more stored on the floor under all the shelving area. So we are prepared

This was my sweet potatoes. I love the faux sweet potato vines to use just for decorations and so easy to grow...but this year decided to grow my own REAL sweet potatoes from slips I grew on my windowsill. Well either a deer or a rabbit decided to have the vines for dinner. The plants are still alive and putting out new leaves so I will leave them for awhile until I harvest. 

This is my little sweetheart...Fredrick VonBlackballs. He is a chihuahua and he was a rescue dog. He and Lulu (below) are both around the same age and thinking maybe about 10 years old. He still has his moments where he thinks you are going to beat him but we never have but think it may have occurred before we got him. 

This is LULU and is a totally mix breed. She is also a rescue dog but so so sweet. She loves to hunt the squirrels and rabbits in our yard and especially loves to ride in our ATV. Both she and Freddy are outside dogs as we don't plan to ever have an inside pet due to hair and allergies. But we couldn't love them more. We have a dog house for them on the porch of our sunroom building and then in winter we move it inside the sunroom building and keep a heater running so they are kept nicely in cold weather. In fact the summer heat we have is harder on them than the winter cold.
