Summer is here and it has come on strong. This past week we have seen very hot to almost bareable for me. However, the vegetable game is strong this year.
We have the luck of being able to go to two different farmer’s markets. Normally I would be growing my own vegetables bu a storm washed all my plants out of my raised beds. Now we go to our local farmer’s markets on Tuesday and Saturday. We have made friends with a couple of the local farmers which allows Glitter Bug to see where our food comes from. This has also allowed me to do some canning.
Yesterday was the first time I canned without my Hubby’s help. I have to say it was a lot of hard work and heat. Glitter Bug did help by packing the slices in, moving jars and putting in the crisper stuff. She also pulled a couple of the jars out of the canner. This made canning pickles much more fun and exciting for her. Here is some of our work.
