Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Exhausted by the activity

Nicholas is exhausted by all the activity lately. He can barely keep up.


He says he just can't peel one more potato.  Come on, Nicholas, time to cowboy up because I'm going out to dig another bucket. I went thru my notes and I remembered where another row is....

So many potatoes...

Someone asked why I'm canning all these spuds instead of just keeping them in the cellar? Mostly because we don't have a cellar - we have a finished basement so it's not a great place to store anything but jars of potatoes.

Also - having them "ready" makes for some super quick suppers. It really is easier to have them ready to go. Last nite we had a quick fry up with some smoked sausage. I had a jar of potatoes that didn't seal so I just drained them and plopped them in the fry pan. Done. So easy.

Happy Monday everyone - we have a hot week on tap and I'm already getting a late start. Are you exhausted by all the activity? We're not done yet folks!

Canned potatoes are good but the processing time is so long in the pressure cooker. We have a root cellar but mice are a problem there.

Poor Nicholas. I know the feeling. I have been busier than a one armed paper hanger. LOL LOVE seeing the pantry fill up tho! :)
