I have a confession to make. I wasn’t completely honest in yesterday’s post.
Yes, I did go out to the farm.
Yes, I did harvest some sunflowers.
Yes, the squirrels have started the war early by pilfering some of the sunflowers.
The one thing I neglected to tell you was that I came home with other stuff too.
I know, I know, I need more tomatoes like a whole in the head. But it was only one more flat, and they’ll be really good dehydrated.
Now the potatoes, those are something new. I knew the farm had a big crop and I really wanted to can some this year. And by purchasing them (for little or nothing) I was helping them out!
So instead of spending time on stringing up the sunflowers, I canned 13 quarts of taters.
Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, I can
maybe try to refrain from getting any more produce from them when I go out there again this weekend for what I will from here on out refer to as “The Great Sunflower Watch”.
I just know you’re bubbling over with excitement!
