All of the green beans picked earlier this week have been canned and are ready to stash in the pantry. It would have been 14 quarts but the bottom fell out of one as I was taking it out of the canner (hate it when that happens ;-( ) And so 13 quarts thus far ready for cold winter nights. If mother nature will bless us with some rain I should have more ready by the weekend.

Well looks like I am going to be busy in the kitchen this week! A bushel of green beans have been picked. Kitchen chores are welcome this time of year. The temperature has been hovering in the upper 90's and the humidity is through the roof, making outside chores most unpleasant. Guess I better get busy snapping!

Chickens Everywhere! A day spent rearranging chickens, yes, poultry is plentiful around here right now. The meat birds were moved from the chicken tractor to the orchard and old hen house. They will be ready to process in another 2 weeks or so.
The first batch of laying chicks were then moved to the tractor. They will stay here until big enough to not escape from the chicken house where the meat birds are currently living.
AND, in the now empty brooder 18 more chicks and 5 Khaki Campbell ducks were placed. Shhh, the ducks are a secret. Hubby doesn't know.
