Schmidt Homestead

Our new home in Woodburn, IL

I’ll probably be making another batch or two of salsa and spaghetti sauce (our favorite) this weekend. I don’t know how much longer the tomatoes will be coming in, but I plan to take advantage of it as long as I can! I counted 36 jars of various sizes and contents in the cabinet this weekend, and that was before I made 6 more on Sunday. It also doesn’t include anything we’ve given away or eaten or the pickles that we have to keep in the fridge!

We’ve finally had some fall weather and rain here as well. We haven’t turned on the furnace yet, but we’ll have to in the next few days. For now, we’ve been fine with an electric heater in our bedroom. The rest of the trailer stays warmer because of the stove and electronics in the main area and the other bedroom being on the south side.
