We have a propane burner set up in the shop to heat out canner that way we don't have to heat up the house. Very nice!
Packing the jars. Um, look at all that garlic on the counter just waiting to go into the jars. Everyone knows they better save Mom a piece of garlic!These are pickles from last year. Just wanted to show you the finished product. People go nuts over these. I'm not really a pickle person, but my family is crazy about them. They'll go through a jar after dinner in one night. Honestly, these are the only pickles I've ever liked. We're making enough to give as Christmas gifts because we know it is a unique gift that most people like. We'll probably pickle two more weekends. I'll be storing them under my bed, LOL.
BTW, Josiah took the first four pictures all by himself without any coaching from me. He seems to really like photography. We're thinking of getting him a cheap digital for his b-day.
I'm hoping to do a gardening post soon, now that we have some hot weather fruits and veggies coming on.
