Days of Summer - canning time!

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. 
Genesis 8:22

We have a garden every year, my husband puts a lot of work into it.
The good Lord blessed us with a lot of rain early in the Spring and the heat did not turn on until a few weeks ago, so our beans have done great! I  help with picking , shelling and then canning the fruit of his labor.  We have been busy the last couple weeks canning green beans and pinto beans. I also made apple jelly and orange marmalade. It's nice to open a jar of home canned veggies in the middle of Winter and enjoy them!

It is very hot outside, so I worked inside today!  I put up 10 half pints of apple jelly!

And I finished a pillow for my youngest granddaughter's birthday in August.  She loves pillows, and she is a little girl with a big attitude!  I thought this saying on her pillow was perfect!

Our garden so far has been good this year.  The Lord blessed us with enough green beans to can 60 quarts. The squash and zucchini are coming off the vine now.  We have pinto beans just waiting to fill out and be picked and peas blooming. The tomatoes are coming along and we've picked some peppers too. It's a busy time of the year!
