We've been busy this week , the garden is blessing us with a bountiful harvest. Picking up potatoes , picking beans , canning beans , digging onions , storing the potatoes , canning the smaller ones ( alot of those) .
And this morning , the critters started raiding the corn , so I picked all the corn , now I have to prepare it. Since some of these ears are small , I'll be cutting it off the cob and freezing it. We'll probably have a few more bags of corn on the cob too. Glad they didn't do a total raid , one year they got all the corn. I'm not sure if it was coons or deer , but I'm sure they'll be back. Earlier this week I had more visitors , they maybe the bandits. If you click on the photo , it will enlarge. A doe and her twins were grazing in the front yard , Hubby's lawnmower has been broke down , he finally got it fixed and mowed Thursday. I went to get the camera , the doe heard me coming out the door and she went to the edge of the woods , the babies were still there , watching me. They stood there for a few seconds , looking at me , the one to the left put up its white tail , but the the other one didn't seem to sense any danger , it started walking toward me , but Mom gave a snort and off they went , thur the woods. They were cute , still had spots.
I've canned 6 qts of green beans and 6 qts of potatoes , froze 24 ears of corn this week. The beans need picking again and there's many more potatoes to can. The peppers are hanging again , will pickle some of those next week. My tomatoes are starting to ripen , they're a little late. I 'm glad or I would be canning tomatoes and making salsa too.
Time to head back to the kitchen , silk the corn and blanch it. We're going to a birthday cook-out for my Son-in-Law and his Mother tonight. It'll be nice to go out and take a rest from the garden.
Hope your weekend is going well.
