Aren't we supposed to be on summer vacation? It's been so busy! My sister-in-law and her family were here for the weekend from out of state, I don't think I quit moving the whole time. We had what was supposed to be an informal birthday party/cook out (our middle daughter turned 4 recently) and we ended up with 20ish people! It was fun, though! We were at the local amusement park all day Sunday and then the county fair on Monday. Our oldest has day camp all next week so I'm trying to take a breather now!
My garden is doing great. I made and canned zucchini relish today, I'll post a picture later. For now, here's a picture of the lovely strawberry jam I made last month-
Very yummy! I love canning, especially things that come from my garden. It's a bit of work, but I think it's very rewarding. I don't know if I save a lot of money, but it's satisfying preserving foods you've grown with your own hand in your own yard! Plus, the "conspiracy theory" side of me says it's a good skill to have "just in case!" ;)
