Summer officially ended two days ago, and even though i lament the passing of long days and cricket-filled nights, i do like fall as well. I have a whole list of "to-dos" that i never accomplished this summer, but i don't feel too bad because some of the things on my list have been there for 2-3 years now. I'll just add them to next summer's list when spring rolls around. And even though there are lots of things i didn't get done, we have been busy with a number of other projects like the hen house, canning, and lots of eating. I've been meaning to build a hen house for the last month. I was hoping to get it done before the chickens started laying, but i didn't quite manage.
I found the first egg on the first day of fall and i got another one today. But i have made progress on the henhouse. We got it all framed last weekend, and i'm hoping i can finish it up this weekend.
In addition to the hen house, we've been trying to put up and cook with the garden abundance we've been enjoying.
Over Memorial Day we turned some of this:
And this last weekend, we turned more of it into this:
Tomato basil pizza (actually i think cait put just about everything on this pizza, so maybe it should be called "everything but the kitchen sink")
Calzone (i have to admit, this was a botched pizza, but we just folded the dough over and it still made a pretty good calzone).
