  • Canning Marathon 2011
    on Sep 8, 2011 in canning preserving
    Canning is finally, FINALLY on it's way and I find that if I even skip a day, I am behind. Took a few days off this week and discovered Tuesday night that suddenly I had tomatoes in abundance, ready to be picked and desperately needing canned. I bel...
  • Pretty Lined Shelves
    on Aug 28, 2011 in canning preserving
    Well, my canning shelves are filling up! Made several pints of salsa. Pickled green beans. Pickled cucumbers. Today, I made 6 quarts of tomato sauce. LOVE to see the pantry lining up with pretty glass jars filled with the spoils on my labor!!
  • Un-caged Tomatoes
    on Aug 18, 2011 in garden
    This "grand experiment" of grow tomatoes without cages.....has been an utter disaster. I see people all over town that do this. I'm guessing they really don't care about production like I do. I can hardly get to my tomatoes to pi...
  • My New Outdoor Canning Kitchen
    on Aug 10, 2011 in canning preserving
    For a couple years now, I've wanted an outdoor stove for canning. It gets so hot in my kitchen when I can and I can't always do my canning in the early morning hours. Sometimes, I have to do it smack in the middle of the hot afternoon or in the eveni...
  • Pickling Cucumbers and other delightful things....
    on Aug 3, 2011 in canning preserving
    This is the time of the summer season that I love. It's the start of canning season. I realize canning a lot of work and hot, tiring work at that. However, when it's all done, the many, many jars of beautiful wonderfulness that line my pantry shelves...
  • Bits of Gardeny Randomness2 days ago, I had enough pickling cucumbers to can 7 pints of pickles. Dill pickles. So yummy. We had a freakishly cool morning for July and the breeze coming through the kitchen window was amazing. So I did some canning before it got terribly hot. I...
  • Homemade Peanut Flax Butter
    on Jul 11, 2011 in all natural living recipes
    I've been wanting to make my own peanut butter for a long time. Not for the cost savings, but for health benefits. We don't consume a ton of peanut butter, but we do like it. We've always bought all natural peanut butter because we didn't want all th...
  • Hidden Beauties....
    on Jul 10, 2011 in family garden
    My son is a budding photographer and he took some really lovely pictures of some "hidden" beauties in my garden today. Enjoy!
  • Beetles, herbs and canning some goodies.....Wow. Been a while since I blogged here. Crazy how busy a person can get during the summer. I am happy to say that things are going well in the garden so far this year. I'm having some trouble with a black beetle of sorts and they are enjoying chewing...
  • The Sights Around My Garden
    on Jun 11, 2011 in garden
    I've spent most of the past 2 days working hard in my garden. I'm determined to make it not only a place that provides food for my family, but also a place of beauty and tranquility. Last year, in this flower bed and the one behind the fence, I pla...
