This weekend was great! We had our(for lack of a better name) Prepper Party! We had a great amount of people showed up. We had good food to eat and great conversation. You can't understand how great it is to talk to people who think on the same line that you do when it comes to being prepared. Now, I want to let you know this was not an "end of the world" event. This was a "be prepared for anything" type of party. We talked about all kinds of things that could happen. It was very enlightening. Things that you never thought about was brought up by the person next to you. It was an all around great night. In fact, we are hoping to have another get-together in the spring. Maybe with even more people and more organization. hehehe
The week before we had the party, we were given some bean plants by Hubby's parents. They planted too many so they were just pulling up the plants, beans and all, and giving them away. We ended up with the back of Hubby's truck heaping full of green bean plants. After we picked the beans off of the plants we had 3 bushels of green beans. I actually ran out of jars! I now know what I need to get me for Christmas. (Did I just say the C word. Auuugh!) Before I ended up running out of jars, I had 72 quarts of beans. I ended up giving over a bushel of them away. I think I'll be fine with that. LOL!
I am glad to see October finally here but, it is the busiest month for us. It seems like every weekend we have something to do or someplace to go. This coming weekend we are going to the Kentucky Wool Festival. YEA!!!! I love this festival! This is where I learned how to spin wool. Thank you Sara! Great place to be! I'll try to take some pictures but, I'm having issues with not being able to put pictures on here. I don't know. I'll figure something out. lol
So how is your October turning our so far?
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, one busy farmer.
