Everyone joins in on the fun.

Luci's new hair do. Done just in time for her birthday celebration.

The corn is ready to be kernaled so we can begin canning. To find out more about canning visit our new blog; secret ingredient. Over the weekend we did green beans and dilly beans. This week we will can corn. The following week we start peaches and pears. Everything is so beautiful in harvest season.

Schucking corn is a full time job.

Happy birthday Luci!
Happy birthday Dad!

My birds are having babies. Here are what the eggs look like. We have two different nests that have tiny finch eggs. There is a lot of buzz in the house about when they will hatch. We are excited.
Today we started another blog. It is called Secret Ingredient. We will blog about cooking and our experiments with preserving. Here is a picture of our new pressure canner. This weekend we will try canning some corn and some green beans.
