Raspberries for the future, Lord willing...

Mother, Jacob and I spent some time out in the bright sunshine, picking green tomatoes off of the vines. We've been waiting for them to ripen out of doors, but decided to let them turn red inside now, as it is getting quite late in the season and we don't want the tomatoes to freeze at night....


While I was down at the Keisters' house, Sarah asked if I'd like to dig up some of their raspberry plants to take home. As we've talked about getting raspberries before, but never did, I knew this was the time to do it! I finally got them transplanted into the garden today. There is a total of 36 plants. Hopefully most of them will "Take" and produce and reproduce like Sarah's have! Sarah also gave me several lily bulbs which I am very excited about! I planted them today also.

I have often admired this picture while at the Keisters' home and was so pleased when Sarah said I could have it---as something to remember them by. :) I'm thinking it might have to join my other "Future home" items up in the attic for the time being though, as all our walls are full and this is quite a large wall hanging....



Mother had clients here again this afternoon. Dad hauled grain all day, except for when he combined flax this evening. Andrew spent most of the day in the combine, except for when a tire went flat and he and Jacob had to change it. Jacob helped in the garden for a while and also helped Andrew with odds and ends, and swathed down the cover crop that was planted this Spring.... It was a good day!

That's a nice picture! I have a few "Future home" pictures that are in my closet and bottom bureau drawer.

Here is the link to their family photo site.

Hey there Cora, :)

So glad you got the bushes. I pray they will do you well.

We were picking quite a few of the green tomatoes we had left today... and the pumpkins. The end of the season is coming here as well. Although I believe it will be a while before it freezes... it's in the 40's at night this week.

Yours, Carra
