Quart jar of pretty dill pickles
Quarts of tomatoes and pints of peach jelly waiting to be carried to the pantry
Green beans and mulberry jelly are slated to be done today. We have spent the last several mornings, doing a garden version of 'downward facing dog' and lunge positions and such while we practically stand on our heads picking grocery bag after grocery bag of green beans. We are being over run by green beans, but we ran short last year, so the abundance this year is welcome. Even if it is a million degrees by nine in the morning.
This life is a lot of hard work, but it's so worth it. I love watching the pantry fill with rows of things we have grown and processed in our little kitchen. I love opening an egg carton to the brown,cream,white, speckled, blue, and green eggs that our chickens lay. And I love seeing the half gallon jars of healthy, fresh milk in the fridge.
