Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a good day. We have been busy here-wait, don’t I always say that? Well, its true but sometimes I think you all probably get tired of hearing it. Today we gathered the last of the early corn. It had gotten too hard to just eat so I cut it off the cob and put it into a crock to pickle. I love pickled corn! Also, we worked up a bushel of apples. We got them as cull apples and they were only $6.00. Not too bad and they really were pretty. Just a few spots and bruises, not many at all. We got 9 qts of applesauce and 4 half gal. of apple juice from them. On top of all of that, I have been dealing with some type of head cold or allergies or something. All I know is that I feel yucky , my nose is congested and my throat is sore. I do not, repeat-DO NOT- like being sick. I would not have been able to accomplish any of this today, if not for the help of my girls. They are such helpers. Thanks girls!
Well, the last canner is done. Time to start cooking supper. Enjoy your day and God bless.
UPDATE: My wonderful Hubby is bringing home subway for supper!! If I felt like it, I would do a happy dance.
Nice price on the apples! I can hardly wait for apples to come in. I am sorry you aren’t feeling well.
Nice surprise after a long hard day of working in the kitchen. Lucky you, enjoy!
You always have the neatest recipes. Pickled corn, hummm. I make corn relish, creamed corn, and we blanch and freeze our corn on the cob.
Our apple orchards are full of little red goodies that are under way for a mid to late September harvest. I can’t wait I take the dogs for a walk through everyday and get so excited when I think about the upcoming season.
Have a great evening.
I now remember eating your pickled corn way back when I first met you. You gave me a pint to take home. 🙂 I hope you are feeling better really soon. Sounds like the girls and George are taking really good care of you! We changed our minds about the cascades and were going to go to Grayson Highlands instead, but it is storming here right now and there is a 50% chance of storms there tomorrow. Maybe we will just go to the movies and will be able to do the Cascades and Grayson Highlands with you this year. 🙂 Talk to you soon. :)Vicki
Get well soon. It’s good to hear that your girls are such a blessing to you. Subway for an easy dinner is such a treat when we don’t have our normal energy. Enjoy your tasty canned treats. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings and so much more!
