Sometimes I'm more philosophical than others, and if you've read my posts you probably recognize those times. This is one of those. It's really easy in the course of life to get caught up in the mundane things. Commuting to your job five days a week, doing laundry, cleaning the house, all the really boring parts of life the rest of the time. Then there's taking care of the chickens-
and then the eggs!
Beans at the base
Saturday night dinner, it was amazing!
Big, tall Basil, pesto time soon to freeze!
All homegrown cukes and tomatoes, more Saturday night dinner
Green beans, bacon & onion, another Saturday night dinner dish
Room for peaches
All done, 25 Qts. canned (10 Spiced) and 10 Qts frozen. I made spiced peaches with clove and cinnamon sticks, should be nice for the holidays! More apples will fill another shelf soon.
We also have our apple tree which is really loaded and should be ripe in another month or so-
I made a big batch of pasta sauce with our tomatoes last weekend and froze half of it. Dave and I deep cleaned the freezer a week or so ago and it is filling up! Next month we'll be canning and freezing lots of apple products. The pears will be ripe then too, but we just eat them fresh and bake. This is when I'm really glad we have a dishwasher. I've thought in the past if I were by myself I'd pull it out and add shelves with basket. No I don't think so! Look at all those lovely clean jars-
