Heirloom Mum's....clear...40*

We've talked quite a bit on this page about the endurance of the jonquil, how it comes back year after year in the old homesteads, long after the people that planted them and oftentimes the farm, home, and all other remnants of the yard are gone............ I talked about how I got my start HERE
We have other such enduring plants here as well, the heirloom roses, such as the Cherokee rose and Seven Sisters rose you can read more about that Here  and HERE .
There are others too, the old- old pear trees, no one seems to know a variety or an age on them, they are just there, and seem to always have been, each tree has a fruit with a unique taste, we have two of these 'wild' pear trees in our yard and neither taste a bit alike even though they grow side by side, on my daughter's farm there are three such trees planted in a row, they look like they've been there forever, gnarled and ancient, they were told when they bought the farm from the folks that had lived there nearly 30 years that THEY were told by an elderly neighbor that the trees were over 100 years old then! They still bloom and make fruit every year, then there are the wild plum trees, that make a delicious syrup if you have 10lbs of sugar to spare in every batch----their a tad  tart!
But I interrupted myself, what I was going to tell you about is the enduring flower that we have blooming right now. An heirloom mum, now this one isn't one I see everywhere I go, like the jonquils of spring........But it sure does brighten our yard every fall. We were given a start about 20 years ago, from a neighbor who had been given it, "After a funeral, many years ago" not knowing what else to do with it they had planted it, and it had come back year after year, and taken over a whole corner of their yard, so they were happy to share a start with us.
Now I don't know if this was a 'typical' mum when they received it that had reverted to it's heritage once planted, or if they had gotten it so long ago that it was before mum's had been bred into tidy compact balls, but this mum, doesn't know when to stop, it spreads like mint sending runners underground to pop up feet away from the parent plant, it looks dense enough in the spring when it comes up a dark rich green, but by this time of year (no matter how much we "pinch" it back, like you are suppose to do, to make mum's behave)  it has managed to shoot itself a good two-three feet tall, falling all over everything around it in the process, and then , come October, it starts to bloom, abundantly and persistently! It always seems to get a frost or two on it, and I've seen it coated in ice, and dusted with an early snow, and never even fazed, it will bloom till we get a hard freeze! The last thing to bloom in our garden every year...something to carry us over till the Jonquil's come up in the spring...................

Remember When?...Partly cloudy...windy...50*

How many have done their canning in these bail type jars? I'm still
cleaning out years of accumulation and have so many of these saved.
So hard to throw them out!!!
 In the '70's when it was announced the jar
rings would no longer be manufactured I went to the local hardware
store and ordered a whole case, many of which I still have.
 I still remember how hard it was to stretch the rubber onto the glass.
You had to have them super hot to make them a little stretchable,
and if you weren't quick, you had to put the rubber back in the hot water and
start again. I'll admit the "new" way with metal lid is easier, but
aren't the jars less durable? I never remember loosing the bottom out
of one of the bail type jars! 
Anyway now for what to do with them???????
 A button jar? a penny jar? Colorful dried beans? I have a craft idea
that I'll share if I'm successful, but of course we won't be able to
afford to ship them, have to sell locally or give as gifts.
Any of you have an idea? What would you do with a whole collection of these?

The sudden change in weather (even if it IS time for it) from 80's, Sunny and Dry last week, to  the drizzle, damp, foggy, rainy and cool 50's today is making me wonder if we're in for an early long winter..........times like this make my mind turn to baking, is it the same for you too?

Mystery Stew...Cloudy..windy...50*

On these cold blustery days do your thoughts turn to cooking?
For those who have to go off for the day, do you have a crockpot?
There's nothing nicer for the cook, than to come home to supper already
cooking, and ready to serve!

I grew up with my Mom's philosophy of "Waste Not, Want Not"
so here are some ways I practice that in the cooking arena.

Whenever I cook vegetables, I save the liquid, and when cool put it in the
refrigerator or freezer. Mom always said the best fed person in the
house was the kitchen drain!!! 

So then when I'm ready to make soup or stew I have stock ready.
 Even small amounts of leftover vegetables can be saved this way, and of course as we mention in our cookbook shredded squash or sweet potatoes, fresh or frozen, can be added to most everything.
With a little browned meat or chicken this assortment of flavors makes
a unique taste that one can't quite identify.

If you're thinking your  mornings are too crowded to do this before you leave, just assemble in refrigerator the night before in a pan. Then in morning heat to a simmer on the stove top and pour in crockpot and cook all day on low.
Then you can come home to a warm, delicious bowl of Mystery Stew too !

Sunday Quotes....cloudy...drizzle...50's

There is an appointed time for everything.
1 And there is a time for every event under heaven—
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.

Waffles & Fruit syrup....Cloudy....60's

Buttermilk Waffles

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 T. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3 large eggs
3 T. sugar
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup butter, melted

In large bowl beat eggs and sugar, until light and fluffy. In another bowl combine, flour, cornstarch, baking powder & soda, stir to mix with a whisk , alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk into egg mixture stir lightly with the whisk after each addition. Stir just until mixed Don't beat, add vanill and butter,stir to incorporate.
Cook in a HOT greased waffle iron, do desired crispness. Serve with your favorite fruit syrup!

Here's how I make ours:
Works for elderberry, blackberry, peach, strawberry......
I use Sure-Jell and inside pkg. I use the cooked jelly recipe procedure.  Elderberries won't be offered so I use "Currant" directions instead. Prepare the fruit as instructed with 2 cups water instead of 1 1/2 . When measuring juice into pot (after straining) add 1/2 cup lemon juice. Now reduce the sugar to 3 cups and proceed with procedure. This will make a syrup instead of jelly. I also do this with other fruits, when there is an abundance, to have syrup in the winter for pancakes. We especially like wild plum and they don't produce enough very often. 
See the original post about this Elderberry syrup along with a garlic snippet HERE !

Food for Thought.........Sunny....70's

Continued from yesterday's post  HERE

Do we ever think about those
Living in tents
Who are told to be content
With lots of beans and rice
And not to be thinking
Beef stew would be nice

And do we think of the cook
Who cooks every day
Doesn't ask for a raise
But would love some praise................

Food for Thought.....Sunny.. 70's

Continued  from yesterday's post HERE

What do we do
Do we use our thoughts
To ponder pans and pots
And think how to rearrange
Lots of food upon our range

What should we do
When rearranging becomes a chore
Especially as we do it more & more
Carry on - bring it to the table
At least as long as we are able......................

Today is share day over on our FACEBOOK page too! Won't you join us and help support handcrafted sales!

Food for Thought...Sunny....50's

What would we do
If nothing were new
If we ate every day
Food cooked the same way

Would we loose our appetite
And only eat a mite
Just because we're knowing

That it keeps us going......

Her First Cake....

She measured out the shortening with a solemn air.

 The sugar and milk also...
then she took the greatest care
to count the eggs correctly and to add a little bit
of baking powder which you know, beginners oft omit
She stirred it all together, then she baked it one full hour
But she never quite forgave herself..........
        for leaving out the flour!

Sunday Quotes...Sunny...Chilly...40's

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Joyce Kilmer

Sweet Potato Season....windy.. 50's

Well after nearly a month of no rain and 80 plus degree weather,  the forecast suddenly called for (possible) rain and (possible) frost..... so we decided we'd better get the sweet potatoes dug, after all dusty digging is better than muddy digging, right?
Now sweet potatoes are a fall crop, so typically when you dig them you are wearing long sleeves, maybe a light jacket, thinking of baked sweet potatoes, sweet potato soup and sweet potato pie.

Well, yesterday we broke the  record for heat on this date in October----93* !
So for two hours we're digging sweet potatoes, sweating, swatting flies,
and instead of thinking about sweet potatoes pies,
wondering who's idea it was to plant a 70' row of sweet potatoes
oh yeah mine.

And last night, it didn't rain and since I couldn't sleep for the tired back from digging the sweet potatoes I heard at least three flocks of geese flying over, so perhaps fall really is here this time.
Oh and the possible frost forecast  for tomorrow night? They raised the forecast temp. a  good five degrees--so probably not.

And today would have been a beautiful day to dig potatoes, 50's and breezy....................
some 40 degrees cooler than yesterday!
Oh well, as they say around these parts, if you don't like the weather , just wait a minute.

Anyways, they are dug and curing now, and it was a good year for them too--at least THEY were underground where the squirrels left them alone!
And Sweet Potato Soup and a Sweet Potato Pie sound wonderful today, what a difference a day makes, isn't it so?

 Back in the day
part of every day attire
Made with flour sacks, muslin or calico
they did more than cover your dress
to this  Grandma could attest
 From daylight till dark
for dusting and gathering
cooking ,cleaning and more
they helped in some small way
with every single chore
Today we remember them with nostalgia,
-----so sad they've been retired
 We write of them in poems & blogs & magazines
because they bring back memories
of a simpler time
They still have a practical use,
Gather vegetables, eggs or a misplaced item.....
to return to it's proper place, later on.
or simply hang out the wash, while remembering a slower pace
In that long ago place...................

The Lonely Silent Cabin has half its'  new roof installed. We will miss our wood shingles covered in moss that were toted here from N.H. almost 40 years ago for the original roof.

The interior cleaning is well under way also.

Snippets & Snatches....cloudy....50's


All of life is rearranging
This I have determined
Please don't take this as a sermon
From before the cradle
Until you're no longer able
All of life is rearranging

No matter what your goals
No matter what your dreams
You'll spend your days
Rearranging to fit some theme

Stop and think what you did today
And then remember yesterday
You rearranged from dawn to dusk
Did those things that were a must
Then rearranged again

Sometimes there'll be a thrill
But mostly it's mundane
But everyday you rearrange
And then arrange again...........

"Vintage" Chocolate's

Here's one of my Mom's recipes, at least 50 years old. You can see how much it's been used. 
Isn't her handwriting lovely? She and her sisters had such pretty flowing script,
 back in the day when handwriting was still emphasized in school!

6 T. cornstarch
1/2 cup cocoa
few grains of salt
1 cup sugar
1 quart milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Here's the procedure ------------
Mix sugar ( I reduce to 2/3 cup) cornstarch and cocoa in a heavy
bottom pan.  Add milk while stirring over medium heat.

Continue to stir until thickened and just starts to bubble.
If you have to answer the phone,  the door, or check Facebook remove from heat, it will catch on bottom and burn!
Add vanilla, pour into bowl, cover with plastic and let cool or chill in refrigerator.
Says feeds 6, but not at my house!

Snippets & Snatches....Clear and cold...low 40's

Snippets & Snatches

  I found this paper while going through my years' worth of stash.
Not recognizing what it was I almost threw it out. ( Believe me, I realize
just REARRANGING my stuff isn't going to reduce it by much!).

Anyway I'm glad I  looked closer because, here was this little story my sister
 had written in this free paper from the area where she lived in Alaska.
These free papers were a pleasant part of small town America in the past.
I wonder if any still exist. The ones in my area are all gone.
Here's the story. ( My brother would have been nine at the time of this

                              My Brother's Tree House

As a kid, I looked up to my brother, my older brother. He did the
chores. He had adventures I wasn't old enough to have, and he had his
own room full of electronic equipment that he hid in his closet from
He was the big brother, I, the baby sister. He never bothered with me
too much. Nor, I, him. Our worlds were too different. Yet, once in
awhile our two separate existences would merge for a moment in time.
Like the time he built the tree house.
I remember Mom giving my brother permission to build it in a tree by
the barn. This was a stretch for Mom. She was out on a limb, so to
During the days that followed, I was filled with suspense, having
never seen a tree house before. I watched as my brother nailed crate
slats to the tree as a ladder. I stopped from my play as he rigged up
a pulley and hauled lumber up with a rope.
"How clever big brothers are", I thought.
One day I woke from a nap to find Mom gone and brother in charge. "Ya
wanna come outside"? he asked. "I've got something to show ya". We
dashed out. Lo and behold, way up in that tree was his tree house,
finished only moments before. It was a lean-to sort of thing, with
double doors like a barn. A creation that whetted ones' appetite for
My brother raced up the ladder. As a king considers his kingdom he
stood. I felt far removed, sitting on the porch step.
"Hey," he said, "If we hurry before Mom comes back, you could come up too."
"Me, up there?" I asked in disbelief.
"Yea, sure, I'll help you!" he declared generously.
It sounded like a good idea. Until he had me half way up those rickety
slats, pushing from behind for all he was worth. For one thing, after
looking down, I found my feet glued to the rung with a will of their
own, stubbornly resisting my brother's efforts.
After a trip to the bathroom and another to get teddy, I arrived on
the platform.
Oh wonder of wonders!  There we sat, Indian style. My brother's are
around my shoulder, my teddy in my lap and a view of the world like
never before. I felt older than three. I could just imagine the worlds
we would conquer together. Like the Lone Ranger and Tonto, Tarzan and
Jane, Christopher Robin and Pooh---My Brother and I.
As we sat in our private dreamland, Mom's car turned into the
driveway. One look at my brother's face and I was jolted from my
"Young man, where is your head?" she demanded frantically. During the
torrent of scolding, I was rapidly returned to my earthbound
Gazing upon the discouraged face of my worthy hero, I silently
repented of the trouble I had caused him. Then he looked down at me
and smiled knowingly, "It's okay kid," he said "We'll do it again
We did too, but we never told Mom, or perhaps she just never let on she knew.
