On Thursday, before I found out I'd be picking a ton of produce to preserve all week, I started working on K-girl's wallpaper. When we moved into the house it had this "girlfriend" border, which I don't like and K-girl didn't like either. So in between freezing broccoli and pickling all my cucumbers I found time to finish removing wallpaper and paint.
Look a picture of me. At least the lamp is blocking most of my backside. Every mom loves to have pictures of their backside posted on the web. ;) I've decided that I really dislike wallpaper.
Just a few of the cucumbers getting washed up.
How many did we pick???? Next year I don't think we will pick this many or I will find someone else who wants some ahead of time.
Some of my bread and butter pickles.
more pickles...these ones are dill
We ended up with:
28 pints and 7 quarts of bread and butter pickles
10 pints and 10 quarts of dill pickles
I don't think I want to see another cucumber for a month! The canning directions said they had to sit and absorb the flavor for 4-6 weeks anyways.
K-girl's bed and quilt in her room. I still haven't got the old curtains back up yet.
And of course we got more veggies on Tuesday. I love that we get so much variety and my kids love trying all the new things (most of the time anyways). I love the feeling that my kids and hubby are getting nutritious food each week and we are preserving food to last us all winter long. But I do hope that the green bean pick isn't this weekend...I need a break!
