I’ve been a busy homesteader the last few days.  Even though it seems awful early for harvesting, it does make sense considering the early spring/summer that we had.

And as they say in the farming biz, make hay while the sun shines!

Well, I’m not a farmer, but the same rules apply when canning all the goodness that is coming to us right now.

I was originally intending to give you the post on Phase Two of my canning today, but I simply haven’t found the time or energy to edit and upload the pictures (you gain a reprieve today I guess).

Instead I want to share this

I don’t know what it is about this photo, but I love it dearly.  This was taken at the family farm and the light was just so perfect with the dying weeds all around this old milk can.  I imagine I lugged this old jug around a time or two when I was younger.  Even empty those things weigh a ton.

Please bear with me for the next few days as I work my way through the blackberry patch (again) and another 25 pounds of tomatoes.
