Farmhouse Newsletter


Hello Girls


We have had a wonderful summer!! A little bit more rain than normal but we can’t do anything about that. I did some canning last week. A friend of mine gave me a recipe for relish and it is wonderful. A friend of Elbert’s gave me several bushels of beautiful tomatoes. We have a small garden but not enough tomatoes to can. We plan to have a bigger garden next year now that Elbert is no longer working!! He said it is easy to plan a garden during the winter. Lol. We did not have one when I was young cause we lived in town.  I am not used to working in a garden so he does that and I do the canning. Besides, a woman has to have time to sew and quilt no matter what the season! Hope all of you had good days this summer and found time to sew a little in between all other activities.   Good Luck to all the farmhouse teachers going back to school this month.

Farmhouse will not be open on Saturdays this month.
