I still have to deal with a heap of cucumbers, but that won't be too difficult. As Scarlet would say, "I'll think about that tomorrow."
Holy moly. Nice job, Katie!

I've been mucking out the spare bedroom.

See you all later this morning

I think it would work better if two people weren't sharing that number of "fish attendants". I think it would have to be repeated a few times to get more results. I wouldn't have another fish "pedicure" at that spa again.

Back from the shops!

Steve bought me a lovely soft dressing gown while we were out, it is lovely

It is so soft, warm and cosy that I will want to wear it all day

After the fish pedicure we went to a nearby a West Indian store. We went in search of hot sauce. We have had very good luck with hot sauce from this store in the past. Picked up some hot lime chutney and some Pickapeppa brand hot mango sauce. Oh my, oh my, oh my! They are both really tasty. I can hardly wait to try them with a meal.

So...I've canned 24 jars of beans and am about to tackle 3 milk crates of corn.

Not what I'd had on my schedule today, but it will be yummy when cold weather rolls around.
What a wonderful sense of accomplisment! I'll bet your holuse smells really good. Getting so much canning done this early in the year. I used to can, & loved it, then we got our business up & going it just fell by the wayside.

Well, simonbaker, accomplishing this much in what appears to be early in the season is only because our season is at least 4 weeks ahead of schedule. Our weather has been so unseasonably hot and dry that everything is soooooo ahead.

But, yes, the kitchen was definitely a great place to be and all the jars of beans and the stacks of vacuum-closed bags of corn-on-the cob were awesome to behold.

Last year I put more than 100 ears of corn in the freezer and, since we didn't put out a garden this year because of the dry weather, it's nice to enjoy Kenneth's generosity. We even had some corn for our evening meal tonight. Yummy!!!

I've wanted to do this for a couple of years but I think the only place within 60 miles has stopped offering it.

I thought their website said health department required the fish be put in fresh water for each new client so the water can't share foot diseases.
