Spaghetti sauce was canned today, 11 quarts, with plans for another batch next week. Most of these I will pack up and send with Luke to school. My next batch I think I will can in pints to keep here.
Once the canning and cleaning was finished, hubby and I hauled all the equipment for taking off the honey tomorrow. Yes! We are finally going to harvest our own homestead honey, thanks to the hard work of our "girls". I am so excited.
It has been over ten years since we have kept bees, so you can imagine the extractor and holding tanks were a bit dusty. They are now sparkling clean and ready for tomorrow.
