Where are all the posts?

It's really hard to find time for blogging during this season. :) The days are busy with picking or processing some food. Washing, chopping, blanching, freezing, canning, seems to be all we do these days. There is a good side and a bad side to everything in life. Fall is the time when farmers find out what they are really made of! It all looks glamorous when it is growing beautifully in the garden all summer long, but then the day of reality hits!
This is the time of year when I ask myself, "Why are we doing this? This is too much work!!!!" It happens every year! :) Then I have to remind myself about how gratifying it is to open a jar of homemade tomato soup for lunch on a cold winter afternoon. And even more encouraging than that is the thought that I am feeding my children foods, and teaching them about foods, that are going to give them a foundation of good health all throughout their life.

Not only is the farm busy, but we have also started school which completely fills up the schedule. So all that to say, sorry there haven't been many posts lately. .....looking forward to our first frost! :)
