MT – Day 38 – Stolen bike

We have had our bikes parked outside the camper ever since we arrived. Whilst we have ridden them a little, it has not been every day. On Wednesday, Richard decided to take Hovis on a bike ride. Not very many minutes later he came back saying he thought his bike had been stolen. Of course a search around the property began but to no avail. As I thought back, I know his bike was propped against the garage... read more

Some of you may remember the kids used to do this regularly when we were on the farm.... read more

With the apricots out of the way it was time to work on some of the nectarines. We all LOVE fresh nectarines so some are being kept in the fridge. HOWEVER we cannot eat 80lbs of them! I have dehydrated nectarines before but with all the other dehydrated fruit that I have stashed away this year I opted to cut the nectarines into chunks and freeze them. I discovered that a nectarine smoothie is absolutely... read more
