Pickles and Jam!

We had a very busy weekend! First, we had about 5 cucumbers from our garden and they were a little large and should have been picked sooner. We decided to pickle them anyway. My neighbor, Jennifer, let us borrow her hot water bath for canning the pickles. Thanks Jennifer!! They turned out wonderful. We had to soak them in pickling lime to crisp them up and that helped a lot. It was all the boys could do not to eat those pickles too. DeMarlon, my nephew, kept asking "Can I have a jar of pickles yet?" They were worth the wait!

Today, we went to Sams Club to pick up some strawberries. They were gorgeous! Here, look.......

We got two boxes so that I could make 10 jars of freezer jam! I may have eaten one or two while I was cutting them up but no one will know!

I will be eating peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwiches for a while! I love that stuff!

And here is what my audience was doing right at the edge of the kitchen while I was making jam. What a life!

Summer Fun

We got a pool and put it up last night. It is leaning a little lot! We have a shallow end and a deep end! But Evan is happy; he loves to swim! He has been out there most of the day and will probably be out there until it gets dark! Here's to summer fun! Let's just hope it isn't leaning too much and collapses!
