PeeS I sent Madeline a Blogville Emergency Medical Kit... so she can practice up on her DAWGtoring skills while she is in the hospital. I think THAT will be mostest helpful, don't you?
OKAY Now... when the garden starts POOPIN OUT... STUFFS.. It's Poop shooter really goes WILD. When my sister .. LORI.. left on Monday at Noon... the FUNS stopped and the WORK got started. My mom did all of this canning by Wednesday... butt I didn't have time to show you until TODAY. My mom took tomatoes celery onions green peppers carrots parsley garlic and cabbage and turned them into 12 quarts of V-8. HERE is a Before and after picture. Hey Wyatt... check out the size of these tomatoes!! I hope yours get this big and RED.. this year, buddy.
AND here are the quarts of Stewed Tomatoes and Green Beans... Over on the Right you can ALMOST see some of the corn that she had already canned... When she gets the shelves all Filled and the Freezers all shoved full... we call it... Mini Kroger. (fur those of you who don't have a Kroger.. that is the BIG grocery store chain... which we hardly ever have to spend green papers in.. beclaws of all the foods that I grow in my garden and the Deer Meats that dad catches)
Now then... On Friday night... Just Minutes before Lori arrived... we had a REAL gully washing downpour... in one hour we got an inch of rain.. AND then THIS GUY came to my safe place pen... we think to keep from drowning...
YEP.... Norwood THAT is fur SURE a REAL Live FROG.. right outside our door. In ALL the time that my mom and dad have lived here.. WAY back BF (Before Frankie) they have NEVER EVER had a FROG... TOADS... Oh YEAH tons of Toads... butt NEVER a Frog.
Like I said... it was a REAL DOWNPOUR... and havin a FROG come WAY up my hill is pretty amazing. Norwood would have gone NUTS over it.
Today I gotta help my mom can more V-8 juice. SOOOOOO like I said, When the Garden Poops out Veggies... we gotta WORK. I may not get to visit you much fur a while.
Last night right before dark my mom helped me pick some RED RASPBERRIES.. I just love em.. right FRESH from the vines.. butt the stickers get in my furs so mom helps me. I ate about 87 of them. AND then I ran to the garden and picked a nice ripe Roma Tomato. After I played with it fur a while.. I at it. THEN.. I went an picked another one. UMMMMMMM YUMMMY. THEN I pulled 3 green beans and had those guys fur my dessert.
I also have some grrrrrreat pics of the CABBAGES and Onions that I helped mom and dad cut up and get into the freezer. I'll TRY to post those fur you over the weekend.
I REALLY REALLY do miss all of you.. and I Pawmise to go back and get all caught up... once I get all this garden work caught up... OKAY???
