Hi everyone from Ten Gables cottage,
This is the meal that was served yesterday at the Octoberfest. It consisted of German Bratwurst with sour Kraut and mustard on a bun, German hot potato salad, and baked beans with bacon. I am not a big fan of Bratwurst, but it was really tasty and the hot potato salad was different, to say the least. I think it had a little too much vinegar in it, but I think it might be something I would have to acquire a taste for. The beans were very good, just like we serve at an American bar-b-que! A glass of cold beer might have gone good with it, but we had lemonade or coffee. Cakes were served for dessert and they were really very good. I had one with a chocolate and a white layer with frosting---Yum!
Well, October is gone, today is the first of November and we have a whole new month ahead of us. It is cooling down a little more in Florida, but still hot and sunny during the day. I just noticed that my poor broccoli plants look very wilted because of the heat. I am considering getting some screen and making a sort of lean-to thing that I can use to help shield them from the hot mid-day sun. Maybe just watering them deeper at night will help. It looks like we aren't going to get rain any time soon.
Have a great day, Egretta
