We eat a lot of bananas I use them in bread , cake , smoothies , Ice cream and all kinds if things
I have been canning bananas and freezing them before they start going up in price.
Here is how I freeze them. I just peel them then put on a pan with wax paper ( so they don’t stick to the pan ) then I slice them in to ½ to 1 inch slices ( I just slice them on the pan then I don’t have to move them to the pan after they are sliced.) If I have enough for more then one layer I put two sheets of wax paper in-between each layer ( I do two then that way they come off the paper easier). I freeze them for 24 hours then take them off the pan and put into baggies. When we need some bananas you can just grab how ever much you need. When we use them in smoothies I will put them in the microwave for about 45 seconds just to thaw them a little so they are not so hard in the blender.

We finished up Branding ( Got all the late calves ) this week end . The weather was just right couldn't believe the wind wasn't blowing a million miles an hour like it has done all week.
My Brother came up to help with his kids and my cousin came up also, she hasn't every seen this done she had lots of fun, we even let her try to brand a calf.
The kids love being able to pet the calves.
Katie is pushing the calves up into the ally way some of the calves have a mind of their own and keep trying to go any way but the direction you want them to go.
One of my nieces who is scared of cows got in the alley and pushed the cows to the shoot was very proud that she got in with them and did a great job. Although the last three were the largest calves and she got out then and said she didn't want to do the larger calves lol.
My nephew trying to ride on of them. Thats one of the fun things on branding day the kids trying to ride some of the larger calves they don't usually last to long before they fall off.
My nieces just love the calves I think they petted almost every one that came through the shoot.
After we got done with branding we had to move the horses to different pasture so we let the girls have a ride. Rosie ( the horse)was being a little stupid so they didn't get to ride very long but I told them to come up this summer after we have worked them a little and ride again.
As you could see when we brand we use a calf table, run the calves in give them their vaccinations and then brand them. My brother and sister in law do it the old fashion way, catch them on horse then tie them and brand them.
Joleen and Katie always try to go and help.
Here they are giving vaccinations.
Branding is a lot of fun and a lot of work. Its probably a good thing it only comes once a year.

50 pounds wheat/ 25 pounds Rice
50 pounds wheat or flour
25 pounds Rice
This month try together extra sewing stuff like needles, thread, patches, buttons, pins and scissors.
If you don’t already have your 72 hour kits try to get them put together.
The skill for this month is gardening if you haven’t had a garden now is the time to get that going and if you have a garden you may want to enlarge it this year. The way things look produce may be hard to come by this fall because of the droughts and all the viruses that a lot of plants are getting.
Put some more into you money stash.
Add some more water to you water supply.
