We have been up to our ears lately with produce from the garden. Literally. It has been a tiring two weeks but our freezer and pantries are getting full.
Since I posted last, I have canned 49 jars of spaghetti sauce.
I still have some in the freezer for the next batch and will pick again tomorrow and get another roaster on to cook.
Monday we cowboyed up and hit the garden and picked all the corn and got it shucked and in the house to soak. If you don’t get your corn put up quickly you had better soak it in water or it will start dehydrating quick. The coons we’re getting into my corn real bad. I saved more than they ate I think. Yesterday I spent all day washing and silking. Then sorting, and vacuum sealing. We had over 75 bags with 6-8 cobs in each. Very good harvest. Although it should have been picked two weeks ago, but I was heavily involved in green beans. We have worked together and got things done around here. God brought my honey home just in time. I don’t think I could have done this by myself this yr with my health problem.
All we have left now in garden is periodic tomatoes. I will continue to harvest and can those until they quit producing.
Now I can focus on some other things like my flower beds which look awful by the way.
Dear hubby has some projects now he can do that he wants to.
Next week Dallas and I are going to have some fun before school starts. I can’t believe our summer is almost over. He is excited about starting high school but a little on the nervous side. We have to change his schedule because he has decided to take his Freshman yr off of football because he has so many classes he wants to take and so many he has to take for his military career path. I will not know how to act not having a game to go to and cheer him on.
We are still having fun with his grandbaby. Now I know why they call them Grand. Poppie bought her a toy and Uncle Dallas put it together.
Dakota is really good with her but every once in a while he gets nervous when he can’t figure her out. The other day he called and said, “I need your help, I don’t know what to do and I can’t take the crying anymore.” Awww, bless him. He tried so hard and as long as he could. We told him to come on over. I took her and got her quiet and settled. Dakota settled down and could catch his thoughts. I know he felt like he failed but he didn’t. Babies do not come with instruction manuals. You have to just figure things out. Dakota had colic when he was a baby. We know it can play havoc on you. He loves her so much and it shows. Sometimes it takes a village.
Well, we are just going to chill today and probably do nothing. I am sore and exhausted.
Hope y’all have a good day.
