Temperature extremes

11 Aug

Talking about the weather has always been a good ice breaker, especially for us farmers and wilderness dwellers.   Living 3000 feet up provides for extreme temperature changes, even in summer.  Its like a climatic mood swing.  We went from 95 in the day to 60 last night.  This keeps you on your toes and ready for anything.  This is good for the gardens in the day and fruit orchards at night.  We’ll see what the fall harvest brings.  Time to start gathering firewood.  Get the canner ready for peaches, tomatoes, applesauce.

I am looking forward to seeing what comes of this page.  I am new to the blog world.  My inspiration will come from working with herbs and plants in the garden and in the wild among other things,  that keep me off-line.  But, i am also highly inspired by what people share about their experiences with food as well.  I hope to begin to maintain a regular check-in here.   Talk to you again soon!
