Fall brings the smells of fresh apple pie baking in the oven. Here is one I made a few weeks ago. I used Honey Crisp Apples and Pilsbury Pie Crust. Easy! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Another buggy crash!

Motorists must slow down when approaching any slow moving vehicle especially amish buggies! We are driving distracted more than ever these days. We lost another local amish person due to a vehicle - buggy collision. It's the 4th one in a month! Very sad. This time it was a little 7 year old amish boy.

Hot pepper relish

This is my first batch of HOT pepper relish! It turned out pretty good. I am glad since pepper are in abundance in my garden, this is a great way to use them up. Making relish is pretty simple to do. Just got to be careful when removing the seeds!!

Garden Goodness

This is my first post. I am fairly new to blogging so I will keep it short and sweet. I thought I would open up by posting some photos of my garden. Currently we are at the height of canning/harvest season! All of my garden goodies did great, except my tomatoes. It just simply wasn't as warm of a summer as we usually are used to. Anyway, I picked and canned plenty of green beans, pickles, cabbage, peaches, and onions. Here are a few pics. It is so rewarding to see your hard work pay off. We will now enjoy this wonderful (preservative free) food all winter!
