Yay, my week two goal for September is being achieved. My water intake is way up. This is what I needed to do to have success in this area...I needed to write my goals out and then focus on one goal at a time.
Although my tomatoes were not ready for processing during my couple of days off, I hold great hopes that they will be on the weekend. I'm not as concerned about them as I was seeing as our temperatures are the warmest they have been all year. In fact according to the forecaster, since May 2010! We are supposed to have these temperatures right through the next 10 days! Yay, no frost!
I did get all my apples juiced yesterday and a then 3 vacuum sealed packages of 5 cups each of apple pulp into the freezer, carrots chopped up and into the freezer as well as zucchini. All ready now for winter use. I still have lots of carrots in the garden that I am letting get a bit bigger before pulling and enough beets yet for another feast of homemade soup.
It's back to work today for two days and then a busy weekend ahead. I could get used to this working only a couple of days a week *grin*. (Working outside the home that is!)
The bounty from my garden. Although it is lots of work harvesting and preserving, it's also a great feeling of accomplishment as you see it all packaged in the freezer or on the shelves in jars.
Beautiful warm weather...we are finally having summer.
I am grateful for my pay cheque that allows me to get the things that we need.
I am grateful for the internet that allows me to find different recipes to preserve the foods from my garden.
I am grateful for friends and family and the support and encouragement they offer.
Have a wonderful blessed day,
