I am so glad to be done with this years canning! I always start out loving it and then after a lot of late nights, after working all day, I start getting tired of it. But our family loves to get a jar of jelly or jam during the winter months. And everyone asks for Salsa. That is Jeff specialty. He helps cut up all the hot peppers and everything else except the tomatoes. I get the tomatoes ready and do the cooking and canning part. We are really a pretty good team when we work together. As you can see we have an empty shelf this year. Last year every shelf was full in the storage room. Not much left in the garden now and a frost is predicted for this coming Thursday which is the opening day of bow season. Jeff is still working on building the hen house and worrying that he has not moved his tree stands around yet. But he wants to close the building up tight for the winter and he is really good with his priorities. I am a lucky woman. Picked out the paint and bought the primer so I am hoping to have a few nice days to get it painted yet this fall and ready for the chicks in the spring.
