So Friday I peeled and cut up 8 lbs. of carrots. Saturday I packed them into jars and ran them through my pressure canner. They yielded 16 pints. One jar broke so I have 15 to add to my shelves.
Sunday Duane made a Farmer's Market run looking for strawberries. We waited too long for there wasn't a strawberry to be found. He did find cucumbers and brought home a small sack of tiny ones for baby dills and another larger sack full of bigger cukes for whole dill pickles, along with a nice bunch of dill. In the afternoon I washed them and got them ready to pack in jars, which I will do in the morning.
I have corn and peas in the freezer waiting to be canned, but I think I will wait on those. The temperature is creeping back into the 90+ range and my little apartment heats up when canning. But all in all, it has been a fairly productive weekend.
