Already thinking about winter

Living this life means that you are always thinking about the next season or seasons. So that means that summer time is the time to prepare for winter, despite that fact that winter seems like a very very long time off. The past three days we have officially gotten up all the wood for this winter and probably some for next winter too. My front yard is one very large woodpile. Now comes the fun part.....splitting and stacking all that wood. A friend of ours came home from vacation to find a very large, very old oak tree had blown down. It took out the power pole, power line and blocked his driveway. So for the past 3 days we have been cutting up and hauling that tree. There are still some large limbs that need cutting, so we will get those up in the next few days and then everything will be back to normal at his house. Well, I can check one off the list of things to do before winter time sets in. Now, on to the rest of the canning and preserving. I don't think my tomatoes are ever going to turn red and......I forgot which tomato patch is german greens, which stay green! Have a good summer, it sure is a hot one down here in the deep south. Blessings from the farm, Kat
