From The Word

  • Matthew 18:2-5
    "And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me."

Wow, that is some preserving Hannah! I love roasting tomatoes then freezing them -- is that how you prepare yours for the freezer? Our season does not extend much past February (equivalent to your August) as the fruit flies have usually come in by then.


What an incredible amount of produce and hard work. Great job! Everything looks so delicious. How will you ever decide what to eat first?! :)


Wow, you've been very fruitful! Looks like you'll be eating good all winter long. Have a great weekend!


Your jars of garden bounty are lovely! I've canned two dozen jars of fig jam from our fig tree and 37 pints of tomatoes (plus two quarts of tomato juice) from tomatoes I bought at the farmer's market. Next on the list is applesauce but I'm not in a hurry for that. So glad to read that Granny is doing better.


Canning used to be something I enjoyed. I've gotten a little tired of it since I need to do so much more while I'm busier. I'm still very thankful that I have applesauce, green beans, peaches, spaghetti sauce, salsa, stewed tomatoes, raspberry, peach, and strawberry jam. I hope to get some grape juice and apple cider and call it DONE! Woohoo! I LOVE to see full canning shelves. They make a pretty picture. :D


Hannah, your bountiful blessing from the Lord looks wonderful! We loved having your Mom and Granny here with us! A happy time! Love them both!


Rose, yes, the sauces I've frozen have been from roasted tomatoes in smaller amounts -great flavor!

Thanks for the comments, Victoria, Tori, and Carolyn! I've enjoyed preserving the garden for our family to enjoy.

Becka and Holly, you have both been busy with your own canning, it sounds like! Some great variety there.
