The late fall has been fantastic with sunny days if cool nights. We are already enjoying a nice fire in the evenings to beat the chill. The garden is done and looking pretty sad but I did manage to get enought Tomatillos for another few batches of salsa. This has got to be one of the best surprises of the summer garden. I have experimented with a few different recipes and each one is good. For canning I decided to use the tried and true from the Ball Blue Book. What a great resource, each recipe has been very good. Tonight was the last 7 jars of salsa, hopefully it will last until spring but who am I kidding! As a dip or condiment to tacos or other items it just disappears. Next year we are adding a few more plants! I need a case of this stuff.
The hen house is taking on a new look. The siding was put on the two largest walls with a modification of adding a door under the roosts for easier access from the outside for cleaning. More to come before I can paint it but it’s a lot better and I bet warmer at night.
