Checking Off the Homesteader's To-do List

Scheduled the chimney sweep.  They were booked until November.  I'm learning of a person closer who does it, but waiting on the info so I can call and make sure he is insured etc.

✔Pulled all the beets.  That bigger one was the only somewhat "big" one out there.  I brought in about a dozen of the smaller.  None to freeze this fall.

✔Started digging up potatoes.  They are very small and few.  Less in pounds than what we planted sadly.  NO sweet potatoes so far.  I'm still digging, so...

✔Emptied last water barrel, flipped over for winter storage

✔Pulled gladiolus bulbs

✔Dehydrated oregano

✔Froze chives

Picked the last of the jalapenos.  If we had had a full grow season, I would have been able to stock up cowboy candy for 3 years.  The plants are getting so tall and it's the end of our season.
