Fall canning season is here, along with threats of frost


Spirit Lake Presbyterian Church Services will remain outside as long as the weather holds. They can be heard on radio station 81.1 FM at 10:30 a.m. and streamed on Facebook. Sunday School is held at 9:30 a.m. A picnic is planned following church services this Sunday. Bring a dish to pass. The Rev. Dick Poppen will speak at 9:35 a.m. Sunday on KWAT 950 AM radio.

Jacoby Larson, a son of the Derick Larson’s, celebrated his sixth birthday Sept. 4 at home with family and friends.

Duane Poppen returned to his home in Aberdeen Wednesday evening after spending time with the Hi-Spirit Ranch silage cutting and his parents, the Cork Poppens.

We received .4 inch of rain this past week. It has been chilly with a threat of frost. We covered tomatoes and flowers but don’t think we had too much frost. They tell us it will be warmer in days ahead.

Just when they are needed the most, canning supplies are nowhere to be found. With the fall garden harvest, supplies are at their premium. It’s strange how we go back to what used to be when necessary— good old days of canning our garden produce.
