The Weekend

Saturday and Sunday were filled with putting food in jars.
I didn't count jars of relish. But I made two batches of sweet zucchini relish and one batch of dill zucchini relish.
Our green beans did not produce a large quantity but I canned four quarts last week. Friends of ours have an abundance of green beans and after they stocked their larder they shared. The crew went over to pick. After all was said and done we have 23 quarts of green beans. Very thankful for all those beans. I still hope to glean a few more quarts from our garden if the frost holds off. 
Soon we will pull carrots and see what we have there. And there is celery and herbs to gather. Potatoes as well, oh I love harvest time!


  1. Wow, that is a lot of produce. Glad you are getting so much canned. :)

  2. Nice! I'm still learning my way around the kitchen, maybe someday I'll get to canning!
