Farmwife's Journal - August 29-30th

We started school Monday, so the days are busier than ever!  After school, we picked blueberries, grapes, plums, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, and basil.  Jonny helped me make pesto, while Em cut the tomatoes and filled the dehydrator with them.  Then we filled the other dehydrator with the beans. 

Today after school, the kids (and some friends) played music for the residents of Dassel Lakeside Apartments (independent living for seniors).  They had a great time and the residents really enjoyed the music. :)  We hurried home when they were done because Emily had a bunny customer coming over.  She sold another bunny to a good home! :) 

Before dinner, we quickly emptied the dehydrator with the beans and filled it with beet slices-beet chips!   ...mmmm! :) 

After dinner, there were, of course, chores to do, but when they were done, we popped popcorn, made grape juice and played a game.  :)

Tomorrow Grandpa comes over after school to teach a fishing class.  The kids can't wait! :)  Right now, the house is quiet!  And I have barely seen my husband for the past two days- he's had meetings.  So I will get off this computer now and spend some time with him! :)
