"we come from a long line of army deserters and nasty drunks"

my week of vacation is almost over.  it's been a week of cooking and gardening and a lot of cleaning.  A lot more cleaning than a vacation usually warrants but it takes a gosh darn lot of work to keep a house clean when you're in it all day.  The dishes have been unbelievable.  I've been cooking kind of a lot.  We started picking potatoes and i made pickles and we canned a ridiculous ton of beets and we're still picking and cooking beans every day.  I thought I would get tired of green beans every day but so far I haven't.  i'd much rather cook and eat them than pick them maybe that's the key.

I used to harvest all the cherries in our cherry tree. Except it wasn't usually more than a cup or two (post-bird harvest), so I generally just climbed the tree, ate the cherries and climbed back done. Harvest and breakfast accomplished at the same time :)

we got two cherries and we picked them early so as not to lose them to the birds. they were itty bitty and hardcore sour. the peaches were hollowed out by ants. the apples disappeared completely but we got two laundry baskets worth of turnips...guess that's something.
