I just joined ths site and then can't find the time to post. It's canning season and from sun up to sun down I am either in the garden or the kitchen. With time out for the chicks of couse. Does anyone here can or am I about the only one left that does this. I made pickles, pickle beets, and canned beets, carrots, green beans, peas early on and put up the corn. I still have the squash and pumpkin to do yet and the cabbage is slow but almost there. Will make sauerkraut out of it. Although this is a lot of work we will eat good this winter. Have a herb garden in a garden window too. Put up 6 cord of wood so will keep warm also. Almost ready for winter and none to soon. It is definitely fall and cold nights semi warm days. Chicks are going to be more work than I remembered I think. Keeping water thawed, cleaning them in the cold weather. But worth it when I go to the chick yard and they come running and talk to me. Be back when the canning is done. Have fun everyone.
