hello and apple sauce

I hear crickets here....seriously, sorry friends.

I have missed this place  and will try to be more diligent in making this blog a part of my life again. I have loved having this as a part of my extension of life on here and on my old blog, lissilulu for the past 10 years or so...sharing life with others and vice versa. :)

I feel so happy to have come to the place that I recognize that I miss being here and part of something bigger.

Another thing that I have come to realize is that I really want to be more diligent. I have several great examples of diligent women in my life...one being my own mom. She hunts, butchers, fishes and cans, picks and cans. I know I am not a hunter, but I have 7 apple trees and about the same of plums on my farm.

I say less Facebooking and more preserving. It's prime time right now for one of our trees. Although, this tree is the transparent apple tree so we mostly like to eat the apples fresh off of it.

I have been told by Tessa though that I am becoming more and more like Lewie and Carol (the previous home owners) in the way that I want to make sure that the apples that fall from the tree get used properly before anyone picks from the tree. lol!

I have to say that I am more of a protector of that tree than any of the other 6...those transparent apples are soooo tasty!

The apples in the fruit tower are for eating and the ones in the casserole dish, along with others that I will cull that have fallen will be a batch of apple sauce. I might even get adventurous enough to can them instead of freezing it! Livin large! ;)

I think I will pit the plums, cut and freeze them. That's if any of them make it past me eating them. They are sooooo good! The chickens are enjoying them too as they fall in their coop.
