Yesterday I used up the last of the crab apples. I didn't want anymore apple butter and we have plenty of apple jelly left from last year, so I made up some vinegar. What I learned? Crab apples are drier than regular apples and it takes more of them to make juice.
I also dried a bunch of kale. What I learned? Kale dries very fast as compared to other vegetables. I was able to dry it and package it within three hours.
We have a wonderfully cool morning-50 degrees. The lawn has grown overnight. I saw it last night and it looked fine, looked out this morning and it looks like pasture again.
Dear donkey Sadie had something spotted in the field at 5:30 this morning. She bellers like a truck horn. I'm sure the new neighbors have already developed a fondness for her. ;)
