Eating Corn

I was changing my son's poopy diaper this morning and I noticed it had some corn in it, which I mentioned to him. So, of course, he asks to see it. I show it him to which he says, "Can I eat that corn, mommy?"

"No, son. You already did!"

Cooking and Canning

This past weekend we made a big batch of salsa using tomatoes, yellow peppers, and onions from our garden. Once we finished preparing it, we canned most of it. We are looking forward to enjoying our salsa over the next few months.

We also went blackberry picking this past weekend which I turned into blackberry jam. I canned it as well.
I wish we had more and better pictures of our time at the blackberry farm. Those of you who know Joshua, also know he can be a handful in situations like this. It was all we could do to maintain control of that boy! His white shirt was completely purple by the end of our time there, as well as his hands, arms, and mouth!
We had a good time and are enjoying our homemade jam!
