I think I can, I think I can....

My mother in law Patty has been teaching me how to can this summer.

Today we canned 50 lbs of peaches!

I am exhausted!

I'm also so grateful that she's taking the time to teach me canning because I don't think I would have had the confidence to try it on my own. Patty is a great canner and an excellent teacher! She grew up in North Dakota and as a little girl watched (and helped) her mother (who I knew as Granny) can everything

I must say there's something very satisfying about hearing those jars "pop" when they seal!

"Yes! It worked!"

Even Colin got in on the action (we canned while the other boys napped)
