I hope you are a persistent HUNTER...
the birds are a little harder to find this year...
the "Rooster Rush" could be
a "Rooster Bust"
but, if you've come to South Dakota
to enjoy a beautiful fall
and take in some Prairie Scenery,
Your bag will be full!
Take a little time to enjoy the scenery today.

Fall and Fun
Hand in Hand...
the garden is still providing
pumpkins, gourds, and more...
and farmer's are still peddling
their wares at the market
People's porches are filling up with
orange wreaths, dried shocks,
and silly pumpkin faces...
cold weather crops are
Baking bread warms the heart
and heats up the kitchen...
it was a chilly day at the farmer's market
but who could resist a chilly day
filled with all this Fall Fun?
Wagon loads of FUN!!
may your pumpkin stay frost free for
a few more weeks!

Focus has been on the
big black pot on the stove
for several weeks now...
We finished with pickles and moved on
to Tomato Juice and "Sallsa"
Sall has been making some great crates...
"it's all in the packaging!" they say
If we were to promote our
full line of product,
we would have a smart dog
representing our brand,
just like those Bean folks have....
Jazz is up for the job
just as soon as we can make enough
product to keep up with the demand.
If there were just 10 more of me
I might be able to keep up....
I thought I was done canning tomato juice
until somebody mentioned Bloody Marys -
then I realized I didn't make any spicy batches!!
Back to the stove again...
good thing the grasshoppers haven't
gobbled up all of the ripened tomatoes yet!
We have been enjoying a super harvest
and the grand finale was
that beautiful Blood red Super Moon!
One more batch of super hot
Bloody Mary mix and
I'm done for the season!
Harvest Blessings to you, friend!

A bountiful harvest
all summer long...
first it was pickles, pickles, and more pickles!
there was a short break
(that I really don't recall,
must've been high on vinegar and dill!)
the tomatoes started coming in,
and there was not much time
for anything else but
makin' juice and "Sallsa"!
the jars are packed and stacked...
Have a great Tuesday,
P.S. Want to sample a Sall Farm Deluxe Kosher Dill Pickle?
Come to our Grand Opening at THE PRAIRIE PRESERVATIONIST
Wednesday Sept. 23rd 10:00 - 5:30
357 Dakota Ave.
Huron, South Dakota
Gann Valley, South Dakota
everyone I asked
had a different count!
But the numbers they gave me
ranged in the 10 to 20 category
not 10 - 20 "thousand"
just 10 to 20!
But when the town of 13 (or so)
decides to have a celebration...
they come in droves!
"The little town with a big heart"
They open their streets and their yards
to anyone who wants to have a
fun day and enjoy a little
old fashioned community spirit...
I captured as many smiles as I could
and gathered them all together
in a 20 page photobook and a 20 minute video...
the DVD is $15.00
the Book is $45.00
If you would like to order one or both
contact me directly or order online with a credit card
just hit the buy now button on the top right.
Also we will have copies at the courthouse
and at Ken's Station to purchase.
Thanks for the memories,

Drive down the road,
at least 21 miles from anywhere....
and you will find the Sall's
busy at their "Country Life"....
This time of year the garden
is top Priority!
we grow and sell
our own PICKLES....
LOTS of GARLIC....
This is my handsome husband
proudly holding just one
of many bundles of
the garlic crop...
Our largest ever,
it was a good year for
and with garlic cloves this big,
it will be an extra good batch
Sallfarm Deluxe Kosher Dill Pickles!!
(better get your order in early!)

When in doubt,
stop and listen....
When the world around you is crazy,
find a quiet place...
When you think nothing is clear,
focus on the simple things...
slow and steady wins the race,
but, just remember...
life is not a race.
stop and smell the prairie grasses
and let the world pass you by...
the view is bigger and brighter
from the prairie.
thanks for stopping by,
