This week, I assembled my Pioneer Drying Rack that I received from Forgotten Way Farms. Oh, it's so lovely, too! Daniel and Abby Jo do a wonderful job making these so that they're heirloom quality. Anyway, now I'm ready for drying during inclement weather - off grid! I suspect it will be used year round for various things as well, such as drying herbs. I think it would lovely as a quilt display.
I was blessed to be able to pick 23# of cherries for free, saving me a ton of money! They've been pitted and frozen for making jam this next week (and maybe a few pies!). I think I'll take the money I saved and buy a couple of cherry trees for our garden. Then I'll have my own in a few years, Lord willing!
Finally, I purchased some seeds for my fall garden at Territorial Seed Company when I was up there this week. All varieties that I chose were actually for Winter gardening, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to keep going right into the cool weather under row covers. I just need to get some conduit, bend it, and order the actual cover.
