Three Days and 53 Quarts Later


I haven't had much time for blogging lately ;-)  The green bean plants are in full swing this time of year, as well as the apple trees!  We were so blessed when a sweet friend offered us as many apples as we can pick from his orchard.  So far we've canned 40-some quarts of applesauce, and I hope to do more than twice that before we go back to the hospital.  I don't know what I'd ever do without Janet's help...canning goes much smoother with 2 people!  We've canned 87 quarts of dilly beans, a few dozen pints of salsa, and over a dozen half-pints of plumb jam from the plumb tree!  We thank the Lord for the bountiful harvest!   
Richie has been going to work for 3 days in a row now.  He's been tired by the end of the day, but he's also been very careful not to overdo it.  Yesterday we figured out that we need to get to bed earlier than 10:00 when we're getting up at 4:30am.  As early as that may seem, we've been happy to be back to a normal schedule for a few days!  I love the early mornings :-)
