I have home-canned 27 quarts of green beans so far. This was the first picking. Lord willing, we will get a few more quarts out of the season.
Got up at Dawn to pick beans and found the fish pond like this…..
The fountain had tipped over and drained out the water. Here’s praying the fish do not die.
On a happier note, a friend gave us some cucumbers and I was able to can 4 quarts of dill pickles.
There is now a shortage of canning supplies. I was thankful to find 24 jars with lids. I have jars already but no one has lids and Amazon is price gouging. Hopefully I will be able to locate some by the time we do a second picking of beans.
The fish pond is coming along.
Still need to add bordering plants, maybe a lily pad or two, and of course fish.
Are you ready for Spring? Our temps continue to rise the rollercoaster, but our psyches are ready to soak in God’s creation in all its glory.
A note about planting the rose cuttings: This is my first attempt. Some leave on the leaves, others do not. Some dip the end in root hormone, others do not. I don’t have any, so I did not. I realized after planting that I forgot to “shave” off the end, so you will see in the video where I went back to do that. This is to encourage root growth. Here’s praying they take root and we get a couple strong plants. If you know of a sure fire way to do this, drop me a comment.
Go, be a blessing. MARANATHA!
