Good Evening Everyone,
I hope that all of you are doing well. Its the beginning of the week and hopefully a productive and safe week for all of you.
I am sorry for the delays in posting but I have been canning, and freezing some produce. With great anticipation, we finally got our corn people in from a community about 80 miles east of us. They produce some of the best corn around, and what I like about their corn is: ITS AWESOME. and not too many WORMS! I have been freezing this corn, I blanch first, then I use my vacuum sealer and bag it. I wanted to can some, but personally, I am starting to get POOPED. I have been doing tomatoes, and cucumbers, and freezing some peppers, and canning a few, but I am starting the old, "I tired of the garden routine", which I shouldn't be like that, I enjoy the produce and the harvest, but damn, my back is sure screaming, especially this year. So I have just been doing small batches, getting things together, and then I get another batch, and get it canned. I won't be able to get it all, and if I have leftovers, or the neighbors have leftovers, I will donate this to the food pantries and the homeless shelter. I would like to do some sweet pepper spread, and a few things that I have never tried before, and then I think that I will slow down.
We had a nasty storm yesterday evening, and it rolled through and made a lot of noise, and of course, it had some hail in it, but it was small hail, and not a bad wind behind it to drive the hail through the garden. We had another a few hours ago tonight, a tiny one, it made a lot a noise also, but it blew just south of us and is being naughty down the way. During the night, we had a nasty cloud go over, the clouds were very ominous looking, and the lightning was terrible, but no thunder, just a few piddles of rain drops. We had a storm last week and we got about 3/4 inch of rain, but that was about it.
Well, other than that, that is just about it in a nutshell. I will post photos of canned stuff and corn. Right now, I am totally pooped and am seriously thinking of bed and read a little and then ZZZZZZZZZ.
Good Night Everyone
