It was a nail biter clear to the final out and we won! This game was so much fun to watch. At one point I thought I was going to have a heart attack. The other team was really good so this one made all of us walk a little taller. Livie was so awesome. She hit that ball and she ran. At our last game she had a tough one. She was tagged out at third twice and then struck out. We shed lots of tears. Daddy worked with her at home some and then she started practicing her batting here at home. It showed. All of the girls did a really good job. Our team will begin tournament play Thursday and we are really starting the gel as a team.
This week I have been busy canning. I have made sweet spear pickles, bread & butter pickles, sweet relish, dilly beans and pickled beets and I am nowhere near finished. Still have dill pickles and dill relish to go. I am also planning to make ketchup and chili sauce. I love canning. That may sound strange, but I do. It is a lot of work, but I love bringing the textures and flavors of summer together in a way that can be enjoyed all winter long.
This week on farm I have sweet corn, slicing, cherry and beefsteak tomatoes. I also have green beans, onions, black berries, and the very first of my Japanese eggplant.
We are still using our online ordering system, but I have been told by a few customers it is not working. I am trying to figure out the problem. If you are interested in sweet corn for the fourth, please give me a call at 785-265-3345. Until Friday everything is available on farm only.Tomorrow is a day worth celebrating. It is our nation’s birthday. As we celebrate let us be thankful we live in a country where our individual liberties are protected more than most. That is a gift that we need to protect. Happy Fourth of July and enjoy your festivities the fresh and fabulous way.v
