I am finally getting a moment to write  about our busyness. For 2 weeks, I’ve only thought of writing and took some pictures to post. It’s been canning and putting away food and more canning and putting away food. As I read through the blogs I see that this is the life of many homemakers and homesteaders right now. It’s the way I’ve known it since I was a child. Summertime is for preparing for the winter and enjoying the delicious fresh veggies from the garden. Lots of hard work and hot days, but lots of satisfaction and reward.

So here is some small proof of our labors…

The photos of the rows of finished product will come later.
