Oh Pickles!!

I had a friend in high school who used to say that all of the time! But that is exactly what we've been doing at our house and lucky for me this year, I have the best helper that I could ask for!
We sat on the floor and packed jars together- well I started to and then he just parked himself right next to me and started to help with his own jar.

Garrick found an old library shelf when he was out biking the other day and he added doors to the front of it- so now we have a place in the basement to keep all of the canning stuff and the food that is in the jars! There is an entire shelf of pickles and about hlaf of one of dilly beans so far. This week we are doing relish- cuc and corn- and then it will be onto salsa, spaghetti sauce and then finally applesauce! We'll see what else comes up or let me know if you have any suggestions!

Gotta roll! Talk to you more soon!
