Yes indeed that time of year is here. You know high canning season has arrived at my house because as I type this I have a giant bowl of pickle relish sitting on my table soaking in salt. Tomorrow that will be the first order of business.
I also have jars of pickles sitting on the other table fermenting. These pickles are the kind thatgo in the refrigerator and are crunchy.
And the mountain of cucumbers, squash and zucchini piled on my counter to be cleaned, blanched and frozen. There is also a big bowl of shredded zucchini in the refrigerator awaiting being made into bread and frozen.
And a giant bowl of pink eyed purple hull peas that I just got finished shelling to be canned tomorrow also. For the rest of the week there are chickens to be butchered and canned. New potatoes to be dug and canned. The corn should be ready with a week or so also. Not to mention 4 rows of red beans and a row of horticultural beans that should be ready to pick within days.
And just to keep things really interesting my computer died this morning. A moment of silence please! After 9 years the old gal has finally bit the big one. That final fatal error. I will continue to post for the next few days while I shop for another computer in all my spare time.Baby O has generously allowed me to share her laptop occasionally when I can find the time. I will not be able to answer as many emails until the new computer is up and running.
I hope all of you that follow this blog will bear with me through the transition as I take the time to purchase a new computer, install software and learn a new operating system. I may not post as often and may have to use photos out of the archives in the interim.
Blessings from the holler
