But there were a few things we needed to do here at home before camp. We had a good garden this year. Just wish it was bigger. Next year we plan to expand. We put up some tomato sauce, bell pepper ( Have you bought a bell pepper lately? They are outrageously high) ~ I fix them ready to stuff and put them in the freezer. I also chop them up for seasoning. I love to cook with bell (sweet) pepper. Also green onion of which I put about three gallon of chopped in the freezer. We picked and put up several bags of butter beans. Still have more to pick. We have okra and more tomatoes coming on. Oh, yes ~ plenty of yellow squash.
Sounds like we are loaded, huh? Like I said our garden is not a huge one so it was a picking every day ~ so it took a couple days to save enough to start preparing. But it is still going so I'm sure we will have a few more weeks of growth. There is a feeling of accomplishment when you see the freezer getting fuller and a few jars sitting around. Just think how many pennies saved just on bell pepper alone. I am going to try and put up a gallon of pickles today.
I am home by myself today. Our son and his wife bought a new
house and Silas has gone to help Rick do some things. Actually, it is 15 acres and home and farm land. He will eventually get a couple horses and he plans on a few head of cattle. The Lord really helped them with the price. It's been awhile since Dad and Son got to spend time together. Rick brought his golf cart out there so I can ride around and look.
Until next time, may the Lord bless each of you.
