Harvest time

Our garden has been a bit slow this year, but over the weekend it decided to explode! Sunday afternoon and evening were full of freezing beans, canning tomatoes, and making bread and butter pickles.

Saturday we made a trip to an orchard and bought a bushel of peaches. Guess what I did last night? No, I didn't eat them all! I canned them. I had forgotten that peaches don't "skin" as easily as tomatoes, and I sure do praise God for freestone peaches! The last canner load finished around 2:15 this morning, but it will be worth it this winter :)

Sleep? Who needs sleep when you can harvest and preserve all night! ZZZZZZZZZ
