Tips and Chicks Monday

We got some more rain yesterday, thankfully without a storm or wind. The garden and the flowers all seemed to enjoy the rain. The chickens also didn’t seem to mind as it cooled things of a bit. One of our “girls” seemed to know the rain was coming as she ran and hid under the bush as soon as she heard the thunder then when it was just rain she went to the middle of the yard and laid there getting all wet.

After the storm was over I checked the garden and found all sorts of veggies waiting to be picked. You can’t see a squash one minute and the next it is so big it’s hard to miss. It’s funny how that works.

I am happy with the garden expansion this year as I have more room and the plants are getting bigger. I am getting a few tomatoes, but have a lot that are green, just waiting for them to turn red. I am anxious to get my tomato sauces made to store for the winter. I am also needing to get out to get some Ball jars to try my hand at canning this year. Some of you gave me some good tips on canning I am going to try out so keep the tips coming.
