It's been a crazy ride...but all of the canning for 2013 is officially done!!! So happy to have it completed for this year. But more than anything, and I am so thankful that with hard work and dedication, our family has been blessed beyond belief. I am so thankful for God's gift of life and growth, and that we have the ability to grow and preserve our own food. I'm also grateful for family and friends who were so willing to help me out. Now I look forward to His gift of a nice long winter where the chore load lightens, and hopes that we will look forward to the work once again next spring.
