CHRISTMAS at the ABBEY

Lots of Lights!

A few days before Christmas a couple of sisters go out into the woods to find the perfect Christmas tree.  And they always do!

They hall it home and the day before Christmas Eve we decorate it.  This year it was a Noah's Ark tree.  All the ornaments were handmade by Sr. Grace.  The tree is in our refectory and won't be taken down until January 11th, the day after the Baptism of the Lord which ends the Christmas season.

A Beautiful and Blessed Autumn


We have been blessed by a beautiful colorful autumn this year.  The last few years have been so wet and cool that there wasn't much color.  A guest on our property said:wherever you look it looks like a postcard.

Potato Harvest

We completed our potato harvest last week. We harvested red,white and gold potatoes. It was a good harvest but not as plentiful as last year due to our drought.  Lots of sisters came to help in the garden.

 AN ABUNDANT HARVEST We are now in the process of harvesting our garden and the harvest is abundant.  We have been eating tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, green beans, garlic onions, sweet potatoes, kale, lettuce, spinach, watermelon, cantaloupe and more.  We have put up gallon of tomato products.  We praise the Lord for such an abundance.  Tomorrow we harvest our potato crop.

Sr. Madeleine is in charge of our garden.

Beautiful Summer, Beautiful Garden

We are experiencing a hot and dry summer.  The garden produce seem to love it.  We have been harvesting beets, swiss chard, radishes,cucumbers, summer squash, zucchini and the first cherry tomatoes are coming in.  Once the roma tomatoes start coming we will be processing pots and pots of spaghetti sauce.  We already have green beans in the freezer.
