Whoa Nellie! Hit the garden at 0600 and started picking stuff. Anne would
take off just as everything is ready to pick and preserve. I've got 7 pints
of green beans in the pressure canner and another 7 pints waiting their
turn. Another 3 pints is in the sauce pan waiting for burner space so I can
cook them to eat over the next few days. All of this off of 24 feet of row.
Will, hopefully, be another week before a batch is ready again. Two
pickings and cannings like this and we've got all the green beans we can
eat for the winter put away.

A 12 foot row of chard is ready to pick and freeze but I'm tired already.
Will get them and the 12 foot row of NZ spinach tomorrow. Picked a pint of
early blueberries yesterday evening and had a batch with my cereal this
morning. Also had to get up in the very small attic and put a new fan belt
on the 36 inch exhaust fan. Glad no one was around to see my fat behind
crawling around up there with a little flashlight in my mouth.

Back to the kitchen.
