What I'm usually doing in July

Freezing peaches - I canned them once and I probably won'  I usually buy the "seconds" from a local orchard and freezer them.  Sometimes I make peach butter but now I'm making peach honey.


Canning green beans

I'm usually freezing corn (at least towards the end of July).  One year I even had a corn freezing party.  It was kind of crazy.

This year I froze blueberries too - towards the beginning of July.  I bought them from a local farmer who only uses vinegar as a weed killer and no other chemicals!

I try to buy as much as I can locally and freeze or can it to use for the winter.  I've been doing this for several years and I just can't seem to stop.  I also canned banana peppers too because I've recently discovered that I love them!

What have you been "putting up" for the winter?



  1. Your blog makes me feel lazy....crazy busy canning, freezing, cooking, baking, home schooling, mother of four!

    You lazy, please! These are things I enjoy. Notice I don't blog about cleaning because you know, that doesn't always get done.


I love comments!
