Thought of the Day #255 - Changing Seasons

As I write this, a blustery change in the weather is blowing in. It's
supposed to get up only to 54 degrees for a high tomorrow...easily 30
lower than it has been all week. Brrr.

With this low high comes below freezing lows which means the end of
canning and freezing of items from the garden. YAY! It's been a long
haul with making/processing two or more things every day. I've canned
fruits and jams, chopped and frozen tons of veggies.

It's been a banner year for jams. When I'm finally done this weekend,
I'll have canned well over 500 jars. Seriously! Some will end up being
sold on, but most will be given away to friends and family. The
beauty of Etsy is that the sales will cover the cost of the jars and
supplies for the entirety. What more could ya ask? Anyway, long canning
season...ending soon. Yay!! http;
