~tis the canning season~

 Everyone's doing it.....
and YES....I am too.
I forget from year to year how much work it is.
 Add an almost toddler to the mix and it takes twice as long.
A couple hours of canning work turned into an entire day.
OK-that's a turned into 3 days. Once I got the beans
snapped and ready I had to put everything away because
some little person woke up from their nap WAAAAYYYYY
too early and I had a very grumpy child to contend with.
And then dinner.
And then homework.
And then bedtime.
So....two days later and voila:
Anyone who cans knows the great feeling of success
and achievement that comes with the "pop" of
your jars sealing. Man-I love that sound.  
 I've got the beans done. 
Sadly, the farmers from the little produce stand I have been buying my beans from for years and years are retiring
and this is their last year :(
Now I just have to do the beats and 
figure out what to do with all
my tomatoes and zucchini.

That will take me another 3 weeks I'm sure.
