On Thursday we had a Farm To Fiber Meeting.  The final touches on the vendor applications were made and they will be going out in the mail and via e-mail shortly.  For anyone who wants to become a vendor at this wonderful fiber event please e-mail me at and I will be sure that you receive an application.


It is with a broken heart I let you know of the passing of Ernest Dodge.  He crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday and I am sure is with his beloved Ethel.  We at the farm will miss him more than words can tell.  Today we buried him on the hill where the garden was this year.  My friend Susan suggested a bench and I think I will get one.  It will be a nice place to sit and take a break from the garden chores.  I did plant some hyacinths they will be nice in the spring.


Today I am making Corn Relish.  It’s a birthday present for my son-in-law Rick.   When I gave him the Chopped Suey Pickles he commented how much he liked spicy corn relish so I have added one hot pepper to the recipe.    This is the end of the season corn and I think the liquid wouldn’t have been so milky if I had done it earlier in the season.  It tastes great and it is hot!!!!!!!!


I also made bread today.  I am hoping to make a batch once a week.    It came out good.  Nothing smells better than bread baking in the oven.   My friend Francine said that she makes the dough in the bread machine and finishes it in the oven.  That would be a lot easier and I think that I will try it next time.

Tomorrow I am going to our local ATHA meeting and lunch.  I am going to bring my cats and pumpkin project.

Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for reading my blog.
