Canning Season is Underway!

I picked 2 buckets of beets this morning, giving me 9  pints of canned beets and 2 quarts and 1 pint of pickled beets.

While the beets were cooking, I made a strawberry cheese pie. It has a layer of cream cheese, a layer of strawberries, and a layer of lemon pudding and dream whip. It looks delicious, and I can;t wait to try it out.

After luch, it was out to the garden to pick peas. Fortunately I had some help.

We had peas for supper, and I put 10 cups in the freezer

Yesterday, July 16th, was my mother-in-laws 92nd birthday. She has dementia and I don't think she was quite sure what all the fuss was, but we managed to get a few pictures.
