The days of November started with a bang!
The weather held for a few days,
the combine rolled in,
the dust flew,
and the farmer was extremely relieved .....
... and thankful to have been able to save the soy bean harvest
(it was beginning to look grim and very late).
These few days of fair weather
gave us a chance to quickly plant the garlic bulbs and to transplant a few rhubarb plants into the front garden.
I saved some of the rhubarb roots
to make an oil infusion ...
for future hand made soap.
Yep, I will surely post something
if this ever comes to fruition,
The remainder of the first week of November
saw yet more rain and even sciffs of snow!
Awww - the dull days of November have arrived.
There was another bright spot, however,
My friend Louise and I were so inspired by
we tied on our aprons
and had an Antipasto chopping and canning party .... that was fun!
Louise has made this in the past and we used
her church's cookbook recipe, tweaking it slightly
with hints from Bev's recipe.
We ended this first week in November
with going to see a play - The Drowsy Chaperone,
(it was brilliant!)
and making some Winter holiday plans with dear friends
Maybe November won't be so dull after all??
Till next time .......... remembering the poppies of November!! Lest we forget ....
