Can you ever can too much???

Okay, so I said "Come back in a few days to get the details on the Once A Month Cooking" and what I really meant was...I have five children and more than I can handle on my plate, so I'll do my best to get around to telling you more about our cooking day, whenever I get around to it:) I'm still working on my Part 3 post because we've been a little busy around here canning large amounts of produce and sending a five year old to his first few days of Kindergarten.

Here's some of our bounty...



Green Beans and Tomatos...

**These beans are not all from this year...I think we did over 100 quarts last year! And most of what we canned did not come from our own garden. We are blessed to have some very skilled (and generous) gardeners in our family!

We also made a little applesauce, of which I forgot to snap photos. Anyway, now you understand why I'm a little delayed in my post about the cooking day. Apparently, cooking day slid right into canning month. I'll do my best to post more in the next week but we've got more green beans that are waiting to be picked and I still have to do something with all these...

Praise God, yet again My Cup Runneth Over...this time with vegetables:)

Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.
-Psalm 67:6


  1. WOW! That's AWESOME! This is only my second year growing a (small) garden and first year canning. I only have a few quarts of spaghetti sauce to show for it, but...it's a start! Unfortunatly our green beans were eaten by bunnies this year! ;o( Nope, you can never can too much!

  2. can I just say the picture of a well stocked pantry relaxes me. I can not wait to be able to start canning
