A glorious and busy fall day on the farm

Today has been (still is, actually) incredibly beautiful—breezy, cool and sunny, a perfect autumn day in New England.

And this has been a typical day busy-wise, too:

  • started the morning by rendering duck fat, which produces a radiant yellow, delicious cooking oil;

 

 


  • harvested hot peppers and tomatoes;

 


  • made six quarts of yogurt;


  • helped Bill make sausages, which he then smoked;


  • prepared a dozen luscious jalapeno peppers for smoking to follow the brats in the smoker;


  • collected eggs and cleaned the chicken house;


  • set up a couple trays of moistened wood pellets for later use in the humanure project

 


  • enjoyed a mini-walk around the farm

 

 

My wish for every being is to experience the sense of delight, nurture, beauty and peace this kind of day brings.  Heaven, right here on Earth.

  1. Whoa! What happened to the look of your blog? I thought I’d been directed to the wrong one. Fortunately, I recognized this entry that I loved.

    1. Oh, you know I’ve gotta change things every now and then; changing the blog “face” is so much easier than cleaning and rearranging my room.
