Elizabeth tripped and fell while running after the horses. She has badly bruised and scratched knees and hands.
Two mornings after that, the horses popped the hinges on the gate and were happily eating in the hayfield. It’s like they are telling us to hurry with that fence so they can eat the fresh grass. This time it was daylight and we were able to round them up and head them right through the gates by the hayfield. And of course we tried to bribe Stormy with a scoop of feed so he wouldn’t be a troublemaker again.
Our neighbors have been over helping evenings to get the holes dug for the new posts. Saturday we will have more help in hopes of getting everything enclosed for the horse and ponies.
We will have everyone that helped and their families over for a chicken barbecue Saturday evening.
Meanwhile the garden is still producing a lot of cucumbers and tomatoes.
We have been canning more dill pickles and salsa. I pulled the red beets last night.
De-tasseling is done now. Verena and Loretta are still leaving around 3 p.m. to stay with 93-year-old Vivian. They come home around 12:30 a.m. They want to bake cookies for her today when they are there. She said she would like sugar cookies.
We have a bushel of peaches here waiting to be worked up. Have two more
bushels on order. Try this recipe:
