Another busy day

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Today has been another busy day. Didn't have time to go to church ...when the garden comes off, we have to stay after it. So this has been my day....
Started my day at 6:30 and picked 2 gallons of blueberries while hubby picked 2 bushels of peas. Then we shelled some before breakfast and then started on canning up our pickled bean salad mix. Made 25 quarts.

Then finished shelling 1 bushel of peas. After lunch, I changed bed linens and did some laundry, washed my hair and bathed the dog and then we finished up the day shelling the 2nd bushel of peas. Tomorrow I will get up early and pick more blueberries while hubby picks more pea. So almost a repeat of today.

    When the garden starts to come in it definitely rules your day. Your beans look so delicious. We have a few more weeks here before anything is ready to start coming in. Have a great day :)

    Man I am so envious. I am desperate for a garden so I can sort my own food like this, but living in the centre of a big city the options are seriously limited. That's my 'one day' goal.

Great work Barbara. It's very satisfying canning as well as being great if you have gardens

    Great way to take the mind off over eating food in the present. Preserving food is a satisfying activity you see the product of all your hard work.
