The canning race has began....

I love to can. Well really I love to eat and cook so I suppose canning fits right in with all of that. I pulled the row of beets and pressure canned them, I love the beautiful color of beets. I will can some more with the fall crop and most likely pickle a bit also.
Today I pickled 10 pints and 6 quarts of cauliflower. The kiddos are pickle fends and I came up with the pickled cauliflower out of desperation a few years ago when I way over-planted and wound up with about 30 heads of cauliflower. I freeze some but the kids really went through the pickled.
The peaches are just about ready I will be dripping peach juice by this time next week.

WAKE UP!!!!!!!!

We were doing some tidying around the house and found a box with files from our old computer. Most were boring tax files and such, but one was a trip back in time. I put the unmarked CD in the drive and was surprised to find some beautiful shots from long ago. It's hard for me to ever believe that we lived in such a gorgeous place... was the water really that blue?? There were photos of kiddos 1,2,and 3 driving the boat..they were so little. My how things can change. I love the farm but thinking of the past is dreamy..........
