nothing much new there huh, seems like the weeks are flying by so darn fast.
It's that season again, time to put up veggies for the year and I love it.
If my honey did not have the contacts that he has with south Georgia and a particular farmer who sends his produce up here as we order it, fresh picked the day before then I probably would not do it.
But, seeing as how he does, well then, I do :)
we get corn, squash, baby limas, butter beans,white acre peas, pink eye peas, cream peas, vidilia onions, squash, peppers, tomatos, cucumbers, and what ever else this man has to offer.
Dean comes to work tells Michael what he has about to be picked and then Michael either tells him to bring him some or asks me what I want and I make a list and then they are picked and brought up the next day or brought when they are harvested...but he wont pick on fridays and bring them on monday thats too long to suit him...
**just to be fair... Dean sells TRUCK LOADS of stuff for the guy who farms he takes orders from everyone on the job not just Michael.
the prices are unbelieveable and all the beans and peas come shelled so a buschel is 2 gallon freezer bags stuffed as full as they will go...
Bradley is my big helper on some stuff he worked off and on for two hours putting up Squash for future meals...
I bought Michael a little shop vac to replace the one we loaned to Martha and finally just gave to her... and I think it really is Bradleys Vacuum....Bradley spent the night one night last week, and after his bath he and papa played with the vacuum for quite some time
the next day I think it was or maybe a day or two later Bradley made a huge mess with chips so we got out the vacuum and he cleaned the WHOLE HOUSE... to him it was all play to me it got a necessary chore done with only a little help from grandma... I would plug in the vacuum and he would suck up all in reach.... I showed him how to do base boards and corners which he took particular joy in then would move to another part of the room... in the end he was worn out and the room was good and vacuumed!
He is such a happy little guy... cause after he and grandma put up the squash ... we went to"'EAT" at his favorite place... MCDONALDS!
we have several big projects in the works.... so will have to get some pics today as Michael started yesterday on the outside ones... and I have more veggie putting up to get done today and really must go buy meat for the month ... am so happy we have managed to make it over a month on the last meat run I made... we are down to our last pack of meat ... I dont like to keep meats much more than a month or two in the freezer....
anyway got a busy weekend ahead ... hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
