Sorry I haven't been around for awhile, but life happened...lol..I had an Aloette Party Sat night so I was busy getting house cleaned and in order, while the garden was deciding....with all the rain we've been getting (Thank You Lord) to start making again, again (thank you Lord). So I spent Fri. shucking and creaming corn to blanch and put in freezer...Hummm doesn't it look good, sorry I didn't get pictures of it put up, and it is lost..lol..in the maze of my full freezer...
Yesterday I worked on a project that I will show y'all on Get R Done Friday. Late yesterday evening I stepped on a piece of tape that was on a box I was using in the project. Well I set down in a rocker and reached down to pull it off, you can imagine my shock when I set back up after pulling the tape off, and the rocker flew out from under me..let me tell you it was a shock when my behind connected with the floor. I think my brain, what is left of it shook for 30 mins. I can tell you it wasn't a pretty sight me stretched out in the middle of the den, DH came running and wanted to help me up, but I told him I had to do it myself. He'd never get me up....needless to say I ordered my Nutrisystem last night. It didn't take but about 30 mins until I was so sore all over and my back was killing me. I still hurt from head to toe this evening.
Any ways today I decided to can my tomatoes, We have really been making some pretty ones this year..
washed and ready to go in the blanching pot...
blanching so I can peel the skin off easier....
Boiling the lids while the maters are getting blanched
peeled and quartered ready for the jars
I got 7 quart jars
putting them in the water bath to cook for 45 mins.
my finished product...more to do tomorrow or Thursday.
Sorry I've been a bad girl and not dropping by much....I will be trying to stay in touch more.
