Can't believe it's time to send the email again - this week flew by so quickly. The crows are flying, leaves are beginning to turn and the nights are getting a little cooler - hard to believe that the summer is near over and school is just about to begin. It will get pretty confusing around here when Eric starts driving oil truck for the winter season. There will still be root crops and lettuce to harvest, I'll be on my own for the market, Dema will be in school and I will continue to chef on Fridays and Saturdays where my son was employed..... not to mention the sleepovers with all the kids (9) before it gets too cold. It will mean wise time management for us - guess you can also say it keeps things from getting stale and boring!
Dema's been having a blast riding his new bike - a huge leap from the one he learned to ride on. This was his prize for painting fence a good part of the summer. He did a fantastic job without complaining. He loves the 'cool looking" bike with different speeds and hand brakes. He has been taking a short ride each evening before bed and he even made the comment that riding his new bike is more fun than playing his Wii - now that's incredible, especially when we basically had to force him to ride every day when he was learning how to peddle, make turns and go up hills! He really wasn't a fan of bike riding until now, which is really great because we enjoy heading to rails to trails occasionally for a quick ride.
The root cellar is starting to fill up with potatoes and beets, the garlic is hung in drying room along with the onions and spaghetti squash - all signs of the summer harvest coming to an end. The tomatoes are showing signs of blight, so I froze and canned several bushel. The lettuce, however, is now starting to perform .... finally! We should have some next week if all goes well.
