We have Cast On!

This is the beginning of the hat for Miss S . . . I'm happy with it so far, how about you?

Took a nice drive up into north Georgia today.  Had to go check on the buildings on the land because I'd been told that one of them had some water damage and rot going on.  It turned out that 3 of the 4 had water damage and one had not only a hole in the roof but critters in the attic.  They are all going to need to have some work done on them.  Thankfully, I found someone to help.  On the way up, I stopped at Jaemor Farms and bought some Apples, some Sweet Potatoes and some fresh Apple Blueberry bread (for breakfast, yum).  The also had lovely peaches - Tina bought some but I already had some here and muscadine and scuppernong grapes.  Lots of other fresh fruits and several kinds of apples - can't remember what these are, sorry.
Miss S will help me figure out what to do with these sweet potatoes when she comes home, I'm pretty sure!

Oh, you're making me hungry! For the sweet potatoes... sweet potato pie, mashed sweet potatoes, sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar, sweet potato rolls, sweet potato and apple casserole... oh how my mouth is watering!

These are destined to become Sweet Potato Dumplings from the cookbook Grazing Along the Crooked Road: Recipes and Stories - Past and Present by Betty Skeens and Libby Bondurant. Miss S had the good fortune to get a signed copy and spend an evening cooking with Ms. Bondurant and Sweet Potatoes are one of her most favorite foods.
