Canning season has begun!
I love this time of year with God's gifts of fresh fruits and veggies.
I just wish it would last longer than just a couple of months.
Maybe someday I will live in a place where I can eat fresh fruit all the time:)
But for now to enjoy this stuff year round I will have to keep on canning.
So today canning started with 13 jars of rhubarb jam. We ran out last year so my goal is to do lots! So I will probably make way too much and then we will have to eat it like it's going out of style (sigh).
And then there was rhubarb left over so we had to make a rhubard dessert (so sad!)
Now I look forward to strawberries (which will soon be ready), raspberries, spinach & lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, gooseberries (which need to be picked today!), carrots, potatoes (very soon I can start stealing the little ones), peas, celery, onions, watermelon, honey dew, tomatillos (never planted them before but was up for the experiment), and just when you think it can't get any better-apples and CORN ON THE COB! Whew just thinking about all that work makes me exhausted!
So here's to the canning season and all you who are preserving your fruits and veggies for the long, cold winter :) Happy Canning!
And of course as soon as I tried to take a picture our ever so cute little model figured she had to be part of the photo!
