September 16th,2008

Today I canned my first Green beans ,6 quarts! I used a water bath and put in vinegar to add acid. They all sealed ! I also canned 2 quarts and 3 pints of apples. They look really pretty in the Jar. Just think of all the cobblers and pies and fried apples I can make this winter.
This season we also got 15 jars of jam from our concord grapes. I have also put 7 gallon bags of juice in the freezer.
The corn has already come in and we had about 70 ears put up in the freezer. We definitely need to get a freezer for next year.
I have also canned 8 jars Jalapeno pepper jelly! For my first time out I don't think that's half bad.
We are looking forward to getting chickens this spring!

  1. Lanita, That is wonderful!! You did very well, especially for being your first year on the farm. I hope you post more photos of your life on the farm. Chickens are lots of fun. The eggs taste great. Kathi
