A Sure Sign of Spring

Posted on May 7 2009 - 8:17pm by Patty

Ok so nobody really had to tell me spring was here, I have been digging in the garden, mowing the lawn, and trimming the sidewalk for weeks now. But I just get so excited this time of year, it is beyond a doubt my favorite season. Summer just gets too hot, and when fall comes around I am so tired of the heat and canning that I am ready for the winter.

I live for spring every year, and this year is no different. I love growing my seedlings for the garden, and I love kicking off canning season with the sweet smell of strawberry jam cooking on the stove.

Today was my first canning session and it felt good.

Originally we had planned on moving out west this summer, and with that move I was not going to get to can or grow much of anything, but plans changed to that makes my growing season that much more sweet this year.


How is your garden growing? Have you had the pleasure of doing any canning yet?
