My husband traded a little work for all these vegetables. What a deal! There's cucumbers, yellow squash, wax beans, an acorn squash, carrots, onions, rutabaga and a few zucchini.
We made chicken soup for the pressure canner. For some reason these didn't process properly so we are just eating them.
LilG and Fred have a special relationship. Fred just loves him like no one else. It's nice to see.
I made pickled squash out of the yellow squash. Seven pints. Whatever didn't fit in the jars I fried up for lunches.
I think vegetables look beautiful in jars.
Our cupboards are getting full. Don't worry, they're not stacked anymore. I found out you are not supposed to stack them because it breaks the seals. I'm looking forward to this winter when we get to eat all this. Not that I want to rush the seasons, but I just know it's going to be tasty.
Charlie eats all the ends of the veggies. It doesn't matter what it is.
These are the vegetables for the Hot Pickle Mix I made especially for LilG. A jalapeno goes into each jar. He likes things spicy. I hope it gets spicy enough for him!
The obligatory food in jars shot.
I've been busy cross-stitching. Finally making progress on this project.
With the rutabaga that we got, I made fries. I expected them to taste like an armpit but they were delicious!
Here's LilG and I working on homework. It's been a good schoolyear so far. LilG is volunteering for the school patrol. He starts flag football soon. His grades are pretty good which is hard for him.I'm proud of him.
