Its Raining

Friday after Thanksgiving, plowed some fields, planted some cover crops.
And it Rained Saturday. Now how cool is that. Not a down pour mind you, but a slow soaking rain. And looks like it might do it again today.
Don't we have lots to be thankful for, I know I do.
Although the weather is cold it is not freezing (yet) at least not every day.
Different subject: Yea, I know I think too much, I call it mind wondering.
OK its raining we have two deer legs, (what to do) Sausage. My Son came over and we made sausage (pan type) didn't feel like making links. So we have these deer legs, remove meat from bones, grind. Sure looks lean, but just happen to have a pork butt in the cooler. It is ground and added to the deer meat, spices added and mixed. At this point you gotta try some, we decide it needs more sage and pepper flakes. With the added ingredients it is really good. Packed into one pound packages ready for freezer. Now that was what I call fun work.
Don't think of a rainbow, Think of it as a SunBow.

Its Over

Well frost has finally frozen. We had a killing frost the other night. Of course it killed all the rest of the Chile plants.
We did have a wonderful harvest this year, for which I am very grateful. It is now time to plant for the coming year. We have already started working the onion ground. Hope to plant the last of December.
Planing how to manage the grass in our fields, I am in hopes that we can master that (we will) somehow make it better.
We have been looking at some of the specialty crops that might be more profitable. Like Asian vegetables, and some of the different type of Chiles.
Not being a large grower i think you have to look harder.
We need rain, but in the mean time I do wish the new seed catalogs would come. I really like to see what is going to be new for the coming year. For some reason some of the seed company's don't send catalogs until after planting time.(duh) I hope every one has a wonderful and Merry Christmas. More later Bill
