I am going to take a break from canning this weekend. I have been on my feet for days at the stove and my feet and legs need a rest. They are pooped. Next week I have new potatoes already dug to go in jars. The green beans also need picking and the onions need to be cut up and frozen. The okra is starting to bear and will start to be picked every day or so and the blackberries will need picking again by Monday. I also still have atleast 1 more cooking of peach pie filling. The coons have already found the corn and it is not even at the milk stage yet so O Wise One will be setting traps all weekend to get ahead of the problem. We also are trying to get rid of a bumble bee swarm on the rabbit cages of all places. They are proving stubborn as O Wise One has sprayed them twice and they keep coming back. Baby O has been invited to spend the weekend with a girlfriend so O Wise One and I hopefully will have a quiet and somewhat restful weekend. Then it is back to work next week on the garden, canning and mowing.
