57 days ago I noted that I was officially entering my crazy time of year. I haven't posted anything since then. To be honest, there hasn't been a whole lot going on around the 'burbstead during that time. Football season has a way of sucking up every last moment of spare time. In 2 short days, I'll be done. THANK GOD!
Fall planting wasn't quite as robust as I would have liked. I got in a bed of lettuce, chard, and spinach, but no peas, beans, or carrots. Next year I will do better. I picked up some blackberry plants for 50% off a couple of weeks ago. I got 6 of them for $15. They're going to be trellised along the fence down one side of the back yard.
I also found a food dehydrator on Craigslist for $15. I've run apples, bananas, and yellow pear tomatoes through it so far. It works like a champ, and it's so much easier than canning. I still want to build a solar dehydrator, but one thing at a time I suppose.
Tomorrow I will turn 31. Honest to god middle aged. Holy shit. Oh well. Tonight the Boy and I are going to see Hank III. It oughta be a damn good time!
