Okay, we are going to try this blog again. I don't know what happened the other day when I blogged, but it all disappeared.
It was a very busy week last week and another one is starting today. Between work and canning and gardening and just trying to come up with new uses for veggies, well, let's just say we've met ourselves coming and going LOL.
Just this week it was 29 jars of salsa, 17 quarts of veggie beef soup, more pickles, and corn shucked and cut off the cob for preparing this evening. Before vacation it was around a hundred jars of green beans and a ton of pickles.
Tomatoes are starting to come off daily. And we learned a few new tricks with the kitchen aid to make our sauces and juice. So, yeah, spaghetti sauce it is this week :)
I've been living in my camper for the last week. It is so much easier than running back and forth each day. Besides we can work later in the night to get more done.
I had mentally prepared for this time of the year. I knew we would be overwhelmed with so much to do each day. But it is nice having help doing it all and doing it together. There's so much learning going on and so much more to learn. But the nice thing is you don't have to do it alone. There's someone there to bounce ideas off of, to laugh together at our stupid mistakes, and to be proud of the hard work together.
Before when I canned I did it all alone. So it was a longer process and very little progress each day. But it got done. :)
Well seeing as today is my day off from the day job, the youngest granddaughter and I will be heading back out to the farm after she wakes up. Then we'll take a small break to take a golf cart ride in the woods and then it will be back to work on corn to get it finished up before heading back to town to get her sister off the bus.
Tomorrow who knows, maybe running tomatoes through the processor and start on spaghetti sauce :) We'll see :)
Everyone have a good one!!!
Blessings to all!!!
