Bringing in the Harvest

Spent the last few weeks finishing all the projects before winter sets in,-----finally got the hay tarped, the last of the potatoes dug, the remaining squash taken out of the hay bin and put in the house, got the butchering done (thanks to my cave-man hubby) and even hauled a little wood.  Had a nice warm fire last night.  There is nothing better than warming your hands over the wood stove after your fingers have turned blue from the cold. 
Gathered  several pounds of pine gum and will be rendering the fat from the animals to make pine gum salve.  This is my favorite time of year.  I am busy squirreling away the harvest from the garden.  Stocking the shelves with preserved vegetables and fruit.  Filling the freezer with animals I know were raised humanely and with care.........but my absolute favorite thing about this time of year is..........

                                   SOUP FOR BREAKFAST
                                   quite frankly,  I am getting just a little tired of eggs, eggs, eggs!

                         Winter has officially arrived when running water freezes in it's tracks

                                            What have you been squirreling away for the winter?
