I made my first "Fall batch" of red raspberry wine yesterday, and will make more today. I have a balloon attached to show the fermentation process occuring. Of course, the raspberries are mine. I'll be moving a portion of my patch after the season ends.

Well, my garden is full of weeds that tower over my head telling me that the soil is in excellent shape and I am the biggest slug of all. Just no energy. Thankfully, the structure of my plantings hold their own in this jungle and provides excellent growing space for some ambitious younger person.

Daniel, your squash, persimmons, and pumpkins surely would win in a county fair! Everything looks healthy with promises of delicious flavors. Whatever you do, it produces fine products. 

You and Don would compete head to head at a county fair. 

Vancouver in Western Washington State and Danville, Vermont in northern Vermont produce some fine garden products.

Don, the carrots shine in the sun like jewels too precious to eat. They look healthy and robust. 

Cary likes my carrot soup best of all the soups I make. Your supply should last well into the winter.

Randy, Your story of your 7-year-old grandson "driving  small equipment" makes my heart sing for joy. Having young children doing such chores far exceeds the value of classroom learning and will serve him well as he grows, as long as he learns his three Rs. Hopefully, these very practical challenges at that age help young ones feel responsible. Their needed labor so close to the food supply helps them mature, as well. 

Thank you for sharing your story, Randy

Harvested my carrots this weekend.  A-1 Hybrids.  It was a good year--they'll last us through the winter.

Bertold, your persimmon pudding recipe sound delicious. I have collected many recipes for p.p., but yours is a new and different one. I'm not sure about how to do the lemon sauce. Your warning scares me!

Joan, your 8 year old story is hitting home. My soon to be 7 yr old grandson is already driving small equipment and helping around the farm. He loves to weed (with a hoe)! Wish I had a video.

8 Year Old Takes Over The Farm Chores!

Jonah grows into a capable young man; it delights me how he reaches for more responsibilities. The good-natured lad just delights me.

10 Steps To Growing Most Of My Food

Here is my favorite permaculture family, Justin Rhodes, The Beautiful One, and their kids, growing up right before our eyes. 

Their children have OT names, but there is not a word about religion. The Rhodes family offer an example of a family as a team.

Our favorite Thanksgiving treat. Not exactly a diet delight, but tasty.

Persimmon Pudding


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 t. soda 
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ¼ t. cinnamon

Mix with:

  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup persimmon pulp
  • 1 t. vanilla

Steam or bake one hour

Lemon Sauce

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3 tablespoons boiling water
  • Large lemon

Juice one large lemon and grated rind. Bring sugar, water, juice & butter to a boil to dissolve sugar. Then in a double boiler stir in the egg and whisk till smooth. (You have to be careful with this or you’ll get egg flower lemon sauce – not appetizing, I found out the hard way.
