We have been maintaining a perfect 10
because that's the amount of pressure need for canning green beans!
There's also been some corn freezing happening!
Just on Tuesday last week this was our totals:
20 cans of green beans
6 boxes of creamed corn frozen
11 ears corn on the cob
1 bag of lima beans
2 bags of green beans
It's beginning to look like a fall-out shelter in our house,
but we know some people who will take some of these cans off our hands!

Its a busy time on the Ponderosa.
Lots of canning and freezing going on in the kitchen. Sometimes at the same time.
We even made our own ketchup!
There's also been some time for fun like taking a trip to the Cumberland County Playhouse to celebrate my mom and dad's 60th wedding anniversary!
We saw Smoke on the Mountain and had a really great day!
It was back to school for the Ponderosa grand kids. One went to second grade and two went to Pre-school. I just know they are the smartest and best looking kids in the class.
There was an election and the brother in law became the Mayor!
Last week the world's longest yard sale happened just a few miles from the Ponderosa and we spent some time there looking for treasures.
Today its just a quiet Sunday, but the beans are growing
and the peas are almost ready to pick.
The grapes are ripening.
The sunflowers are sunning.
The pumpkins are taking over
and the cows are just watching it all happen!
