Indian Summer

We are nto the second week of September and going to be in 80's all week per the weather people.  Getting to 88 on Wednesday.  Normally by now we have the heat going at least in the mornings.

I can say this will give our garden more time to finish its growing season.

The beets are all pulled and canned one of the harder things.  We did the boiling outside in the driveway in the big metal tub.  Took 2-1/2 days to get them all finished.  212 pounds worth.

On Labor day my niece Kimberly and her hubby Rob were in town to visit her grandmother.  So they came up with my mom and her boyfriend Chuck to visit and picnic. Wish more could have come but some were working and other live to far away.

A few of us girls in the family.  Four generations here even with a sons wife on the right. :)

A few of the scattered men.

All in all it was a good visit.
