I have been doing a lot of canning. I have to borrow a caner, because I sold all my canning utensils. I have been really enjoying doing it, but find I am exhausted at the end of the day. So far this is what I have canned: 3 quarts apple butter 4 pints Bing cherry sauce, 13 quarts of apple sauce, 2 pints apple sauce, 32 pints of beets, 4 quarts tomato juice, 13 quarts tomatoes, 2 pints tomatoes, 3 Bing cherry jam, 1 quart watermelon pickles, 5 pints watermelon pickles, 6 1/2 pints strawberry - pineapple jam, 3 pints, carrots, 3 1/2 pints carrots. I believe I am done for this season unless someone gives me some more carrots.
Also have done some freezing. This is what I froze: 24 pints sweet corn, 6 pkgs of 6 cups apple, 5 pkgs of 4 cups of zucchini, 6 pints green beans, 2 meals of chicken noodle and veggie soup.
Bob has been putting plastic on the outside of some of our windows.
He has started therapy after about a three week break. Today he said it felt better after the treatment. We hope it will continue to feel better.
