Canning and the heat
The heat here was oppressive today in the high 90's and high humidity. Not a day to have to work outside. Only chore was to keep the chickens cool in the brooder house. With one fan running they seemed comfortable. Just so fun and relaxing to watch little chicks go about their business of living.
With the power outage yesterday due to the storm that moved through, had to can mustard/turnip greens this morning. Had 14 pints and 5 quarts after all of them were processed. Just more to add to the pantry for later use. Then on to the house cleaning that didnt get done in early spring. Somehow I got a late start on spring cleaning. Got the walls washed in about 1/3 of the house and even with a/c it was too hot to do much. So maybe I'll finish that tomorrow. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
