Harvesting the Corn

We have been processing corn for the last couple of days. I’m so very thankful for the help of Mom who is visiting for the month. We picked the first two rows Tuesday and canned 16 pints and the next two rows yesterday and put up another 14 pints. They’re going right back into the jar boxes to move soon. We dug a row of potatoes yesterday and got about another 30#. That makes about 100# we’ve dug so far and I hope to get about another 90# from what’s left to dig. We went out this morning and found our poor onions lost in the weeds and dug them up. Not nearly what we’d hoped for but still better than last year. We also harvested Lamb’s Quarter and ate some with Supper last night and I’ll probably blanch and freeze some today. I need to can it but I also need to spend part of today packing as we haven’t done ANY this week and we close on the house Monday!! YIPPEE!!

Michael brought home a kitten this week. She’s about 5 weeks old and covered with fleas. Needless to say she’s NOT in the house but in a tub on the porch. We’ve dusted her in diatomacious earth and have been catching and killing them. I bet we’ve killed 100 fleas. I don’t know how she even survived the infestation.

Meet Mimzy. She will be Kalina’s kitten since her dog died last month.

We have a family reunion Saturday and we’re all looking forward to seeing everyone. Once a year is not enough to see them. (I think I’ll take Lamb’s Quarter as that is one of my most abundant “crops”.)

Well, gotta run as the day is passing quickly and there’s much to do.

Have a blessed day!
