The Very Last Day,Time Is Of the Essence

November 8, 2019


my friends time is of the essence this
is the very last day after today there will be no more of harvesting I waited
to the very last minute behind me I got all of my storm windows put in place and
now I have to finish harvesting so many of you have asked me about my flowers
and how to save the seeds so many of you asked me all kinds of questions about
harvesting all of my flowers and things like that so today today is the very
last day before you know it the snowflakes are gonna fall so let’s get
started and today’s chores it stays like this I’m really thankful
for my baskets because I use my baskets to harvest all of my herbs and after
tomorrow a heavy frost that’s gonna hit and that means everything is going to
crumble up and die so we have a few moments yet so let’s get everything
started it is some baskets and a pair of scissors and I’ll show you what we’re
gonna harvest right but it’s about 40 degrees so we’re gonna start with my
marigolds all you have to do is you have to pick the flowers off the maracle’s
and let them dry and those will be your seeds for next this is marshmallow and the leaves of
the marshmallow are really great in making SAVs for your skin so we’re gonna
harvest a lot of these leads now when I make my stabs I only make them with
dried ingredients I don’t use fresh because I’ve always had a problem with
things molding here so I always DRI my things now let’s harvest some tea now I’m going
to harvest my grapefruit tea this is my highly praised tea I love this I use
this for all kinds of potpourri also I can use it for drinking it’s
amazing so this is my grapefruit tea and I want to get the rest of it harvested hey so there is a grapefruit team now
we’re gonna go ahead and we’re gonna harvest my peppermint tea and then we
can call it a day this time of the year the tea is really
straggly the springtime is the best to harvest your teas but with frost coming
we want to get as much of it as we can and now we’re gonna put everything into
my big dehydrator yeah you heard me right this is my greenhouse I use this
as a dehydrator you go in a couple of weeks we’re gonna package everything up
and they will be our seeds and there will be our herbs so today’s the last
day I got some more work to do so there’s onions those are the tops of
the onions they produced all summer long and so I need to cut the tops off and I
need to dehydrate them and those are like chives to me or like onions so I’m
gonna clean up them tubs and I’ll put them in the garage for next year
everything is winding down and they’re it’s the last of my garden it’s been a
good year in the garden now for the finishing work that I have to do today
enjoy it’s time once again for Fanny’s diary
and we are on November the 5th 1943 and Fanny writes today I finished so are you
dressed for Marion no Marion was my husband’s mother and that was Fanny’s
only child I know I get new subscribers every day I got a comment yesterday
wondering if we can buy Fanny’s diary on Amazon that was so precious Danny is my
husband’s grandma and Fanny was like a mother and a grandma to me and I’m gonna
explain to you just why I got married at age 17 and I moved on to the family farm
I moved quite a distance from my childhood home and Fanny lived right
across the field from me Danny lived in a doggy house so what is a doggy house
well in the Amish terms that is a house for the in-laws or a house for the
grandma Marian my husband’s mother was an only
child and so when they built a new house and moved off the farm they built in a
little addition an in-law quarter for Fanny and my husband and I we had bought
the farm so we were all together in one little community and that is where all
of my memories in my just the things I’ve learned in life have come from I
often wonder what would Fanny think knowing that so many people have heard
her diary just remember her diary was for her only and so some of the things
she talks about some of us will never understand fully she never dreamed that
the world would hear her diary you you

    Tessie I've been harvesting the Marigolds this week I still have much more to go yet. My question to you is do you keep the Marigold plants in the ground after you harvested the buds:) Mine are so tall some are toppling over:) I'll be raking leaves to:) I remember using a big gas powered blower to blow the leaves in a big pile and bagging them up her place was so large:) It would take us two days or more:) Those were fun times I enjoyed playing with the leaves making paths before blowing them into a pile:) Tessie it's so mild here it hardly seems like I am getting a frost by this Friday:) It's going to go down to 30 degrees on Friday night:) It's sad to see an empty garden the last day:) Soon we will see snow on the ground:) I need to put away the patio table and chairs and umbrella another summer done:) Love the diary reading tonight:) Love you my sweet sister:) God Bless you and Ken and Family:) Keep smiling sweetie:)

    This time of year is always 'bitter – sweet ' when most of the things we have nurtured & gleaned from , either die or go to sleep for the Winter . We look out over the landscape & wonder , ' Where did all the time go to ? ' I don't think I have heard of Grapefruit Tea . Did you plant it from seed or a plant ?

    We have had cold weather here for a sometime now. I got the last of the storm windows in today all but the one in the kitchen, I am putting it off, for as long as I can. But I think this week I have to put it in, the highs are just to be in the low 40's . I know what is coming with temps like that, will not be going to town a lot to cold for me to be out in it,the Mt's of PA I love them most of the time lol. Everyone is telling me that this yr is to be a bad winter , just look at them and say every winter is bad in Somerset county lol. You keep warm, and pray for me as I pray for you and your family.

    Is your grapefruit tea plant the same as grapefruit mint? Your leaf blower sure makes fast work of the leaves. I always enjoyed raking mine with a big broom rake. I think the rhythm of the rake across the grass was soothing and the quiet of fall was all around me. 🙂

    Love these type videos. Glad to see someone else grows Marshmallow plants. We use the root for various issues since the mucilage it has is amazing. Also grow nasturtiums because the leaves and flowers can be used in salads and the seed pods make a good substitute for capers when pickled. Was that Grapefruit Mint that you picked? I grow a variety of mints in secure planters since they spread quickly. Grapefruit, peppermint, chocolate, orange, lemon, lavender and licorice

    I well remember the times of last harvest day – I never felt sad about it – loved being a squirrel every fall, though today I felt sad at the last day for your garden, somehow. It was very productive for you this year, but couldn't hold a candle to what you received from the food bank! That's such an amazing amount of food you have been able to put away. Your entire family will profit when the famine hits, and that's not far away. Hope you can put up a bit more meat, and some eggs for when the chickens are not laying. I hope to freeze eggs just as you did, while they are quite cheap here. For some reason fresh eggs are what I expect to miss most when we are down to our storage food, as I am unable to have any fowl here. Lovely video!

    You've had nicer weather stick with you a little longer. Are plants few weeks ago were long gone and the Frost has hit us. I love your leaf blower I got one when a friend was selling some other items I was able to buy a used one for $10 from them so excited at age 61 now being able to blow things away easier. I used it one day in my garage blowing out all the leaves in dirt oh my it was fantastic. You have so many yummy things you're saving enjoy them. When you talked about the addition added onto a home that is The Farmhouse that my daughter-in-law's mom moved into when she married into the family she lived in the small home addition onto the large Farmhouse and then as they would have more children they switched and moved into the larger home and the in-laws would move into the smaller home and so she lived her whole life on that farm. That farm was in my daughter-in-law's family for over two hundred years they had 500 acres. Sadly after the grandparents died the siblings pressed for the one family member that was running the farm and was outvoted by his siblings for the farm to be put up for sale. Those homes are the neatest things

    well you have most of the hard work done for the season…other than what you bring home…so now you get to do the fun things…candles, soap, salves and balms…all that good stuff…oh and work on some cookbooks!

    It was peaceful watching you work. I'm visiting my younger son in N. Georgia, so it's actually cool, making it feel like I was there with you during your video. ? Thank you again for sharing your wonderful life. Blessings, Jody. ?✝

    Glad you had time to harvest your last little bit of everything. Looks like it is pretty cold there already. Right this moment we are having warm weather 77 degrees with a high expected of 82 here in Tucson, AZ I can't wait for the cooler weather. Fall just doesn't seem much like fall when it is this warm. LOL
