"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Canning 101

Two very happy ladies, ready to go................
both are basically first-timers!!
We did some Roma's.......I like these because they hold together a little better in the jar after processed. I also, chop some, so that I can dump them into a bowl and ad my spices I get through my food coop and make salsa! It is a special Salsa Seasoning mix.
We also did a box of canning tomatoes.........

And there you have it!!


Then the pickles.....
We had two or three cucumbers left, I usually just eat them, but these guys wanted to use them and there was this little jar....so cute.....you could almost hear it...."pick me, pick me"....

Isn't he cute all full of pickles!!
Pickle row...........

And..........they are still smiling!!!!

Great job! I bet it's more fun with a friend. There've been plenty of times while I've been canning these last few weeks I've wished I had some company.
Happy munching!
