The canning season has begun! Despite trying to can a bit each day, I am still woefully behind. The porch has a permanent fixture of squash and cukes outside the kitchen door...I finally get them done just in time to head to the garden for a new picking. It's a happy conundrum to be in, I must say.
The weather has been perfect for canning this past week...warm but not so warm you don't mind heating up the kitchen a bit. Rainy and cool- just right for keeping a summer-wandering Mama at home and being productive. My flower circle is looking sad and droopy these days though, the rain knocking the Outhouse Bush into humble and languid submission. Poor things.
Seems like now would be a good time to begin the new Canning Tally for the year (over in my sidebar) and as is customary, I'll post last years' here for posterity.
A clean slate!!!
