Canning season has officially started for us. This is the second batch of green beans I have canned. We've already eaten quite a bit of fresh beans for dinners.
I will be picking fresh blackberries from our backyard this evening. I hope to can some berries, maybe make blackberry jelly and of course, blackberry muffins.
We are also enjoying fresh leaf lettuce, zucchini and hopefully the tomatoes and corn will be ready soon. The pumpkins are getting huge and the grape vines and apple tree are full of fruit this year
I usually can about 600 quarts of produce per year. This really helps our budget alot because it is all organic food.
We're also hoping to stretch our food budget farther by my husband getting a deer, our chickens should be laying soon, and I hope to getting second plantings of lettuce and peas in.
