I am also busy canning for the upcoming year. I have started tomato sauce this weekend, and I canned 7 more quarts of green beans. We are way short of green beans for the upcoming year. I need about 65 quarts to last for the year, and we have only 14 quarts. I planted 2 more beds of beans, but the sheep REALLY like green bean leaves. Michael finally was able to secure them out of the garden last night so we are hoping the green beans will recover.
Even though summer is still in full swing here, today is the first day of school. My heart really isn't ready to start back to school yet. This is a very busy kitchen and garden time for me, but school must be done. Our two oldest boys are in public school. Matthew is a senior this year and Joshua is a freshman. I keep our home school schedule following the public school schedule so we can all have the same time off from school. In one respect, it will be nice to be on a more rigid schedule. However I don't feel like summer should be over yet. In my mind, the starting of school is the end of summer.
Well, at least Missy can still sleep late!!!
grace and peace,
