Blessings from a Friend

Wonderful new blog picture above!!

A wonderful friend collected these veggies for me! Plus a cantaloupe and organic mushrooms. Can’t beat a friend who helps run the farmer’s market. She grew the potatoes – don’t they look beautiful??? I can’t wait to grill some potatoes and squash with added onions and sprinkled with oil and garlic ….. yummmmmmmmm!

One zucchini is already in the dehydrator, sliced, oiled and sprinkled with spices. Another squash went in the freezer for zuc bread this winter. I’m waiting on John to bring home the celery seed so I can make relish tomorrow. As I told Alyssa, I’m in hog-heaven.

Hope all of you are enjoying fresh garden veggies this summer but I doubt if it will be as much as I am!

About Debbie

I'm a 53 yo homesteader/homemaker who is obsessively in love with my God, my husband and my life. I don't know anything about blogging and resisted it for years now. I am good at rambling, which is probably the old fashioned way to say blogging anyway so I'll struggle on and see where this goes. My husband, John, and I live on a 55 acre homestead in NE Texas where we raise Dwarf Nigerian Milk Goats, laying hens, guinea, cats and 3 dogs. We try to live as self-sufficiently as possible, raising organic veggies and meat chickens and using our goats milk for drinking, cooking, cheese/butter making and soap making. John works off the homestead but does a lot on the weekends. We basically live the way our grandparents or great grandparents lived. We believe living debt-free like our grandparents did is the biggest step in being self-sufficient or shall I say, God-sufficient. Life here is always an adventure and seldom boring .... to us anyway! If you have time, come watch the grass grow with me on the porch swing. Debbie
