Yesterday was our third or fourth day off with a prolonged power outage. So what did I do? Garden. Lots of gardening!
I picked and pulled weeds. Then I picked some more. Once the power came back on, I started canning….
12 quarts of pickles.
I also cut up these cabbages along with 10 others and made about 8 gallons of sauerkraut.
I am actually really glad the electricity was off for pole maintenance and upgrades. It got me out to the garden. The weather yesterday was perfect for it too. I was so sore last night with the up and down steps and work of it all, but I’m so glad it’s done. I can’t wait for the new house. I’ll do this kind of work out in the “kitchen” in the garage!! Now kraut is checked off the list…the more things I can check off, the more time I’ll have to work in the new house…rumor is we close tomorrow. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
