Carrots, Straw, Bread & Sweeties


It was time to get my dilly carrots canned!  I grew some carrots but not these.  These are from Aldi's.  The bottom fell out of one jar while in the canner.  Grrrrrr!


Strawberry beds covered with straw!  A friend was kind enough to bring me some straw and "wonderful gardener" was kind enough to put it on.  Gardens ready now!  Bring on winter!!!


It was time to bake my bread and make my granola once again.  Who keeps eating it all up!!!!  Hmmmmmmm


My little garden helper misses going out and picking her veggies and raspberries!  She wonders where the nice weather went!


Gracie was in a ballet recital.  Of course Nana and Papa had to go.  Love going to their activities!

Looks like you are all set for winter! I was out there yesterday also covering my beds with straw...It's a windy one today so I'm hoping it stays more or less put!

Hi Margaret, I guess I had better be ready for winter as bitter cold again and a little rain, snow and sleet. Hope your straw stays on! Mine too! LOL Nancy

You look ready for the cold to hit. I still have to go out and pick a bit more, but I think I'll bring it all in this week. Then no more.

Hi Daphne, Good thing I am ready! Rainy, bitter cold, windy and a little snow and hail today! Nancy

Have never eaten dilly carrots but they do look good. Hope your winter is not too harsh.

Hi Audrey, You should try making some dilly carrots. Not hard. We use them cut up on sandwiches a lot. Nancy

Aw, Gracie is so pretty! What a great photo. And your bread! Now you've gone and gotten me hungry, LOL. Also have to say I love Aldis too. My favorite place to shop. :)

Hi Leigh, Thanks! I think more and more people are shopping at Aldi's lately because of the rise in prices.
