The BIGGEST Onion Competition

Well, today was the day.
Here were the entries...

It was a close one, but as you can tell, Steve won with an over 1 pound onion. Now Trav owes his dad a steak dinner (or supper wherever he chooses).

Congratulations :)

Weekend on the farm...

These are from two weeks ago, and I just haven't had enough time to do everything I need/want to, let alone blogging regularly. These are kind of for KT, because we were missing her and thought she wouldn't want to miss the new baby. So, without further ado (and there have probably been 4 or 5 calves born since)...

These are just a few of Mummy's crazy tomato crop. I'm not even going to guesstimate what she's got going on in her soil, but her potatoes are so nuts I couldn't even describe them without a picture. Maybe she'll post more of her garden pics (her peppers are also awesome; and with our garden you'd think we'd have a ton, but I actually stole some of her peppers and tomatoes for another double batch of spaghetti sauce- that's why I'm still up right now, waiting for my steam canner to get done).

It's officially fall...

Be prepared to be impressed- Brad actually made the apple grinder and press (including the fancy, and actually very heavy, buckets). And he likes to put a motor on everything (yeah!).


The "Apple Inspectors", feeling a little overwhelmed by the apples that surround them-
Hey! Where's she going with that cup in her hand!?!
(nt. that's actually her old sippy cup, and she's still our little honey baby :)
Overview, before we officially started-
Brad and his famous apple press-
My absolute favorite picture-
Lots and lots of apples (and that wasn't even all of them!)-
The apple grinder at work-

Team work-
And that folks, is Apple Cider Part I...

Mt. Sterling

Check out the most recent post on the Cheese Underground blog (link locate down and to the right). Milk from the goats I just sold is going to this creamery! There are a couple of nice videos that I enjoyed watching that shows two parts of their Jack making process. See you guys soon when I come home this weekend to make apple cider!!
