Doing The Can-Can!

My sweet husband worked so hard to get our garden plowed and planted. He has lovingly weeded and watered all summer and the plants are flourishing. Now it's time to harvest our bounty. But that means we have to do something with all that produce. I have never in my life canned vegetables!! So, what's a girl to do? Call Grandma of course!!

So, tomorrow morning my Grandma is coming over to pass on her canning wisdom to the next generation. I'm excited, yet anxious. The plan is to learn how to can green beans, make sweet & dill pickles, and spaghetti sauce. And, yes I plan on wearing an adorable little apron (all 50's Donna Reed housewife style) that I got for a review on Peanut Butter and Pickle Reviews ;)

Luckily, my Mother-in-law has volunteered to watch our kiddos tonight so we can go pick and snap TONS AND TONS...did I say TONS of green beans!

  1. You should have let Gracie help you!! She would have been great help! The girls love to weed the garden, and when we got to pickin' I'm enlisting them! It's sooo not work to them! LOL....

  2. Have fun canning! I so wish i had a ton of green beans to can. It's really the only vegetable I can get my kids to eat. Maybe next season we'll plant some...
