Well the other day I had been canning and I wanted to show you what I'd put up, or at least a bit of what we'd put up.  this is some of the spaghetti sauce we put up.  12 pints in all.  Then we put up 8 quarts of ground beef and 10 pints.  Yummy eating in the future.

Well, I got fussed this morning about not blogging.  Seriously I'm gonna do this.  But . . . . I don't think I have that much to say.  I'm not crafty and only can but EVERYONE cans, what interest is that.  I also garden but so does everyone else.  I have animals but so do everyone else.  So what's to read.  Unlike 1st man, I do not have cool projects.  Unlike my welsh blogger I am not nearly so funny.  But . . . . .  I'm gonna try.  I'm gonna be the best blogger . . . . . I promise.   (I think)
I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing since I can't find out how to do things on this blog place.  I love reading others blogs though.  I did find my camera but then couldn't find the cord that allowed me to transfer the pics.  Oh well, I have this basket of plugs and stuff but can never find which one I need. 
Had such a wonderful weekend.
My chicken are learning how to get back into the chicken yard  . all except this one little bugger who thinks she should NOT be a part of the flock.  she never goes in and I'm afraid the coyotes or foxes will get her.  I keep trying to herd her into the yard and so does Pollie,  the blonde chihuahua.  Pollie runs after the flock and they all run pell-mell for the yard.  all except for the one!!  I need a good name for the one though, I can't keep calling her 'the one'. 
did clean up all the trash and burned it yesterday and put down black plastic and am going to solarize an old garden plot.  Want to use it this winter for maybe a large crop of ? ? ?  something.  I also bought some dent corn seed for next years plant.  Can then feed it or grind it into cornmeal. 
today when I go home I will plant some cuke seed and maybe some beets and maybe some sugar snaps, for the fall season.  Need to get some potatoes into the ground to but I need to go to the store to get some seed potatoes.

My son just left the farm for home and another work week.  We had a great time just doing little things and canning.  He picked up some organic beef in Katy on the way up and we canned most of it and wrapped some for fresh.  I made a wonderful spaghetti sauce and canned it.  I'm pressuring my last three jars.  when purchasing some jars my dil had a man ask her what she was canning and she told him her mil canned.  He wanted to now whether I would sell some of my stuff.  Well, I only can for my family but I thought what could it hurt to sell a little.  so I called the man and he wanted five jars of various stuff and I decided to sell it to him.  He seemed really pleased to get it.  And no I'd not sell it just to anyone.  We did put up another shelf system so I could put more of the canned goods in one place rather than all over the kitchen. 

I had thought to post a pic but I cant seem to find my camera.  Typical.
