Last week I told you about the hail damage we had that destroyed most of our gardening efforts of the year. Well, we have to make due with what we've been given so... with the split cabbages ~
we made sauerkraut !
Our damaged cucumbers, what we could salvage, we made
pickles, and relishes.
The apples were knocked to the ground from every tree, so
we made applesauce, frozen apple slices and juice for jelly.
The tomatoes, peppers and onion tops were badly damaged.
Make spaghetti sauce !
And tho this next picture is from last year, with a perfect squash,
this years squash got ' squashed.' So did the pumpkins, but
' No Worries.'
Make PIE !!!
So many times in my lifetime, as a child and still today, I've heard it over and over again...
" Make due with what you have. "
I've heard those words out of my parents mouths so much
that, I know they knew it from experience.
They have taught me well and I so appreciate the childhood and
life I had as a country girl.
As for today and the rest of my life,
I will always be a country kid, even in my Sept. years.
Lovin' Life as it Comes
