The Farmer In the Dell

I don't know about
your neck of the woods,
but here in South Dakota
the farmers
are busy
harvesting wheat...

  here on 
the Sall Farm
this country girl
is busy canning 
whatever Mr. Sall
brings in to  her kitchen!!

My kitchen sink might be
full of cucumbers one day
and hungarian hot wax peppers 
the next...

The summer's been good
to us this year...
the garden has produced
bushels and bushels 
of cucumbers, onions, garlics...
potatoes, dill, peppers...

I'll be ramping up
the tomato juice and salsa
production any day now!

 I only wish the days
could be longer
I could enjoy
it all more!

 Being stuck in the kitchen
all day scrubbing pickles
was starting to get old...

 Chopping tomatoes and peppers
will be a nice change of scenery for me!

 as long as I'm
able to break free
once in awhile to
enjoy some wild flowers
I'm good as gold!!

If this post makes
you want to break away...

come on out 
to the country!

just tell our
gate keeper
you'd like a tour 
of the garden.


He doesn't accept tips,
just belly rubs!


See you soon!


Have a Happy Day!

What a delightful post. Your mosaic really shows off life there on your farm and the joys of your garden. I love your gate keeper.

Our kitchen has been full of grapes, apples and peaches, and now grape jam, apple butter, and peach jam. A wonderful time of year!
