Our Garden in Spokane Washington
My daughter Suzanne and her husband have a lot of experience with vegetable gardens and flowers. This year will be the first summer that they will have most of the vegetables in pots. Our yield is less and the produce is smaller. But at least we have food growing! Also included here is: our Peach canning with peaches from the local farm; My Grand daughters Birthdays - Ramona in July and Kat in August, Suzanne, George and Hannah's camping vacation in Tillamook, Oregon.

We bought some peaches and canned them!

We all took turns with the jobs, I removed the skins and pitted the peaches. Suzanne cut up the peaches as well as scalding them. The girls helped with pitting and removing the skins. George put the peaches in the jars. Suzanne prepared the jars and the lids. George put the jars in the water bath. Suzanne took them out.
I got 18 quarts with my box. I ate three fresh. They got 40 plus some they froze. They cut theirs in half.
