Welcome once again to the Pollock
Family Blog!!!
Where you never know what we might
be doing!!!

Well, this time the girls and the littles are

80 pounds of Delicious Rome Apples

The Ingredients

LOTS of peeling !!

The goal is to peel the whole apple without the peel breaking. She did it!!

Cooking the Apples

Adding a little spice makes it just right

The Garden

To the Sykes, Graves, Dischers, Stricklens, Millers, Frodges, Doolins, Stokes, Pollock children, we just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for sooo much hard work!! Every one of you young people are incredible!! Parents, you should be VERY proud of your children. They are MIGHTY arrows for our LORD and diligently worked so hard for MANY LONG hours and NEVER once complained. Thank you to all of you. When we got the gentle rain after all the work was done, we felt like GOD saying, "I will bless your efforts"
We love you and are sooooo proud of you!!

Mr. & Mrs. Pollock

First things First. The fence must be put up so that the cows will not destroy the garden before it is harvested.

Working on the fence.

Ben is just fed up with Gabriel and starts swinging the post at him...Gabriel quickly grabs a post to defend himself. (not really, but it sounded good)

THIS is why we need a fence
