well hell, my watermelon plant was startin to look like it might do something, Friday afternoon I went out to water the plants & some damn critter ate half the plant

probably the same damn critter that ate our pea plants last week. I'm bettin it's the jack rabbit I've seen around quite a bit. I didn't have a problem with him when he was eating the dandelions out of the yard, but now I'm a bit p*ssed at him

You should have seen the cicada I found while weed eating a few minutes ago. It had to be 4" long and as big around as a .50 piece. I had to do a double take on that one when I first saw it.

Better to run out of jars and have to get more. Running out of vegetables to put in them would be worse!

I haven't seen pantry like that since I was little and at my grandparent's house. Nice!

Some where along the line we traded walk-in pantries for walk-in closest. What were we thinking?

Thanks. There is a lot of work in there. I'm hoping to fill it this year. We normally get it pretty stocked up. I've sold a lot of the jams so far. I'm keeping what's left. The freezers are almost full right now. We can maybe fit a few more gallons in them. Fingers cross we don't lose power. I'll be one upset cookie. There is over 50 pounds of blueberries in them and plenty of corn okra peas and squash.
