I have put up 100 cups so far, and will need to put up more. I work in batches of 20 cups per pot, due to the amount of pans I need to cool it all in. I can do about 40 cups a day, and then I run out of pans. Of course I treat the hens to some cobs, and my new "blondies" ran from them, ha ha! They have, however, learned that Sparta is in charge and when he makes his call to tell them there is a treat, they come running out of the roost. They eventually figured out that the cobs had some goodies on them.
I'll have to check my corn relish supply and see if I need to restock that now too. I love to mix some with a bowl of boiled green beans. It kind of kicks it up a notch in taste, and something different.
I'm also "fall" planting a few things. I totally forgot to fall plant the beets, so that's next. Oye. Where did summer go? The tree leaves are already turning. So sad to see summer go so fast.
Also, yesterday, after watering everything (again) for two hours, I came in to find a message on my phone. It was Hubby saying he was taking the afternoon off, and to be ready to take an hour motorcycle ride. I could not say no to playing hookie for a half-day, so we went. We rode over to where my grandparents used to live (on my Mother's side), drove through town, and ate at local restaurant.
We also visited a Harley store, which I later found out my Grandpa used to work for (way back in the day). There is another local eatery that we plan to go back and try as well. It's the longest motorcycle ride we've taken, and we very much enjoyed it. I have to say it was fun to disconnect from the world and take a break. It stirred up lots of memories of Grandma and Grandpa too. I plan to take my camera next trip and take photos of where their house used to be and what's there now.
Today, it's back to the grind.
At night, when I just wanting to go to sleep, I work a few rows on the baby blanket. Crossing my fingers to get it done, and the energy to do so.
