Every Day

 I cannot believe I'm going to say this but,
I'm glad fall has come and that the snows are following.
We have filled the last jar,
 sold hundreds of pumpkins to carvers, bakers
decorators and lil pumpkin eaters.
 The last of the squash have been baked off
and preserved for that next pie.
Yes, fall has been so busy from the gardens 
and the fields 
the kitchen.

We are physically exhausted but it is such a 
gratifying kind of tired.  Much has been accomplished.
Much is appreciated.  Every day we
truly realize ' Thanksgiving.'

What a Ride
We wouldn't have it any other way!

Yes I can imagine the satisfaction you guys derive from living off the land, it seems just a short time ago you were waiting for ground to thaw.

Love the pictures and narrative. Good read.
Love from a dark and damp day in NC. Sherry & Jack
