Some preserving

well this little bun in the oven really has me out of sorts this time around. In addition to letting just about everything else in my life slide so has my blog. Don't you hate when real life gets in the way..lol

We started our kitchen renovation on Monday so I've been hiding out at my moms with little pickle during the day. So far we are four days in and things are so so. I'm hoping everything stays on track.

Before our renos started I did get a bit of preserving done. A 16 500ml jars of saskatoons, 13 500ml jars sour cherries 8 1L jars of sourkraut and 32lbs of beans!!  I can't find the pics of the saskatoons or cabbage so I'll have to repost them.
Okay my iPad and blogger have decided not to play well together now. So that's all for today!
