Last week was pretty hectic on the Ridge. We were given over 20 quarters of venison to process. In two days time I cut and canned over 40 jars of meat plus ground about 35 pounds of burger and bagged several large roasts and a few steaks. I can now say with certainty that I am DONE canning for the 2013 season.
Lest you think I am now breathing a sign of relief, think again. Christmas is upon us with all of the joys of the season: cookie baking, shopping, wrapping, card sending and attending various Christmas parties, dinners and concerts.
In the barn, things are snug and warm with the new door and the battens finally finished. A couple of the girls are bagging up which means we’ll soon have babies. Canning season may be over, but kidding season is just starting. Maybe we’ll have Christmas babies!!
