Sending many Prayers

It is hard to imagine the destruction and loss that so many of our fellow countrymen are suffering through right now while here in Nebraska life is calm and the weather is beautiful. To our West wildfires are burning up the land and the trees and homes and displacing wildlife. To the South, hurricanes and rain destroying lives and towns and cities.
We offer our prayers and hopes that things will calm down soon and people can rebuild and that they stay safe! We pray that your lives will be able to resume some semblance of normalcy and that you will emerge stronger.

Beautiful beautiful Fall!

Can it really be September 1st already?  I know that it is because the Nebraska State Fair is in full swing and we are harvesting tomatoes at every turn!  We canned 22 pints of salsa this week and earlier froze a case of roasted Hatch chiles and before that we froze sweet corn.  I think we will once again eat well this winter.  More tomato canning will take place today.
