Looks wonderfully relaxing!

Asha, I hope you get out those needles. Just look at Ravelry for a few minutes and you'll want to start knitting!

Well, Sherri, I took 6 months off halfway through the spinning, so I'm not sure about that attention span.

Still here. Not sure if the blog is winding down or what... It's so 2006. :-)

Wow, that comic was perfect!
I find it hard to believe your garden is behind ours, but I suppose that makes geographic sense. Yes, I have heard about freezing tomatoes and I probably will; but we have a cow and a pig going into the freezer in a week or two, so it's not going to be easy! Jessie
Thank you. Your timing was impeccable!

If you can find a butcher, you might have some luck. But I hear pastured or at least farm raised pigs have better lard than factory raised. And more of it, at least in our case!

What can I say? I'm living the dream. :-)

Thanks for noticing. I'm kind of partial to them myself!

A day of food, wine and yarn? I'm in.

I'm loving how many people were raised eating lard. (And that was before the "obesity epidemic.") As for the goats, they are kind of a hoot, kind of a groan, depending on the day. But I forgot to mention in my post that when we propped the storm door open so we could bring many boxes of pork into the kitchen, two hens and a rooster followed us in. They know where the treats are. :-)

So far, he is definitely the underdog. Undercat. Whatever.

To resolve the mystery, as I should have done in my post: To make applesauce, I quarter the apples and simmer them in enough water to cover the bottom and keep them from scorching. Then I put them in a Foley food mill (from eBay, in my case) and crank away. Cores, peels and seeds stay in the top, applesauce comes out the bottom. I add sugar and cinnamon and that's all she wrote. If applesauce required peeling or coring, we would be an applesauce-free household! This is not a big process. During and after dinner last night, I cooked and food-milled apples and canned 12 12-ounce jars. Piece o' cake.

I am growing the Swiss chard in reaction to the spinach, which two years in a row has bolted while sprouting. I need some greens I can count on!
