Well , the end of the summer garden is upon us. We've been busy harvesting the last veggies. I made another batch of spaghetti sauce over the weekend. I found another spaghetti recipe and decided to give it a try , you can check it out here if you're interested ~ http://thechickenkeepers.blogspot.com/2010/09/pizza-spaghetti-or-lasagna-sauce-for.html ~. I had one jar that didn't seal when I canned them , so we had spaghetti last night for supper , this sauce is delicious.
Dh and I dug the first 2 rows of red potatoes Monday , they look very good considering the rain we've had. We still have 2 more rows to dig , so it looks like there will be plenty of potatoes to feed our family this winter.
I love finding the funny shaped potatoes , this one looks like a hippopotamus to me (LOL). I also found a muddy guinea egg in that wheelbarrow of potatoes. I'm thankful it didn't bust , because I'm sure it was rotten.
I graded the potatoes , they are drying out , tomorrow I'll store them. We have several potatoes that will need to be canned , due to bad spots or plow hits.
We have a root cellar of sorts under the back porch , today I raked and cleaned out from under there. There were a few potatoes from last year that had went bad that were still in the cellar. They were dried up , but several had sprouted and tried to grow a few new potatoes before they died. I gathered those up too , I see no reason to waste them , they'll be delicious cooked atop some green beans. I left the door open to let the root cellar air out a bit and the hens decided they would check it out :o)
So , how's your week going ?
