On Monday we went up to Weko beach in Michigan with my family for the day! It was very relaxing. The only negative was the cold water!! There had to be ice floating in there somewhere :)
It has been fun having fruit trees and a garden this year! I have been able to freeze a lot of cucumber slaw, sweet corn and green beans. Today I made some applesauce with our apples! I also have canned sweet pickles, kosher dill pickles, spicy pickles, bread and butter pickles and polish dill pickles all from cucumbers from our garden! I got some nectarines from my grandma and I canned those. My mom, Laura and I also spent most of a day making salsa and pizza sauce. Tyler was able to help me blanch all the tomatoes before he went to work that morning, it was nice working with him :)
Our 2 bushel of tomatoes washed and ready to be blanched.
In other news, our chickens are laying eggs!!! We have been getting between 20 and 22 eggs a day from them recently! It gets to be a lot of eggs :) I consistently have around 10 or 11 dozen in my fridge :) We did have to kill one of our chickens, she has something rupture in side of her and wasn't doing very good. So we are now down to 34 chickens :)
I am sure there is more I could update on but that will have to be it for now :) Hopefully it won't be so long before I update again!!
