    Default New equipment

    Ordered a new digital kitchen scale and a Panasonic bread machine from
    Amazon today. My old Regal bread machine is wearing out and making weird
    noises so will replace it. I have always wanted a digital bread machine
    that will weigh in ounces and also metric so got that too. The Panasonic
    I ordered doesn't have a window in the lid, doesn't make jam, etc. but
    will do exactly what I want a bread machine to do. Plus it was on sale,
    always a deal maker with me. And with over 8,000 good reviews, leading
    up to 4.5 stars it should last me awhile.

    Still putting up persimmons, got maybe one more batch tomorrow or
    Tuesday and will be done with them.

    I think I mentioned that we scored two big bags of lemons the other day,
    look to be either Bearss or Meyer, not sure, will look, them up. Got
    them all juiced and many bags of lemon cubes in the big freezer.

    Still picking green beans and crowder peas, just not enough to can so
    I'm freezing them in a one-meal for two batch in vac bags. Slowly
    building up a supply for the heart of winter. Still have some eggplant
    making plus some tomatoes getting close to ripening, if we don't get a
    hard freeze in the next couple of weeks we will harvest them. Also found
    a volunteer canteloupe growing in the compost heap, it is also about
    ready to harvest if the !@#$% squirrels don't get them all.

    Nothing going on on the preserving front other than those mentioned
    above, nothing we like in season yet although the broccoli, cauliflower,
    cabbage, and Swiss chard are growing albeit slowly due to lack of rain.

    We hope all have a very nice Thanksgiving and enjoy their family time.
    We are going to our daughters place in Houston area on Friday morning as
    we will have our holiday dinner on that day. With so many married
    couples in our descendant group many are spending holiday time with
    spousal parents or just staying home and off the highways. Be careful if
    you're driving somewhere, it's better to get there late than never.

    new toys are always fun. i hope they both
    last a good long time. i've been lusting after a
    good scale for a long time -- someday.

    i'm glad to hear you are getting something of a harvest
    finally this season. i'll hope the cold holds off.
    the weather here has been warm enough to get out and
    get some things done before the ground freezes. good
    exercise and fresh air.

    i was hoping some of the storms that have come
    through stopped in your neighborhood a while and
    gave it a good soaking.

    yes, well be around family, thanks George
    and family, i hope you have a great time too.
    no highway driving. did enough of that this
    past summer. people have no concept of
    space or reaction times, they just all hope
    that something doesn't happen. when it does
    they just hope it happens to someone else.
    grr.

    so that will be one of my thankfull list
    items. no highway driving.

    harvest done here, just finishing up working
    on a few gardens and only a few days away from
    being done with that. looks like today will be
    a light day. meant to get up and get going, but
    someone hit the ditch last night and woke me up
    so i didn't get back to sleep and then a storm
    came through and took the power out so nothing
    went according to plan today. instead i took the
    time to get caught up on feeding the worm farm
    and reading a bit. now it is time to get out and
    get some progress in while i can...

    saving the remaining soybean shelling for the
    rainy cold weather.

    safe journeys to you too.

    We've been depending upon an old mechanical scale that we bought in 1962
    or 1963, it's pretty much worn out but okay for weighing eight lbs of
    fruit for a jelly or jam recipe. I want to make bread by using weight
    instead of cups. From what I've read it is much easier to do and the
    loaves turn out better.

    Just took a nice loaf of whole wheat out of the bread machine, looks
    right tasty, it's cooling on a rack now and will be frozen to take to
    the holiday feast. Just talked to our kids and looks like the whole clan
    will be together for the first time in at least fifteen years.
