It was a wee bit

Busy down on the farm yesterday!

We had a rush on cucumbers! LOL. So yesterday I set to work, getting them sliced and ready for the jar. I had already 'put up' several jars of dill pickles and will do more, but it was 'Bread and Butter time for these cucs!
I love the look of homemade preserves. Much prettier then the stuff you buy at the store! Oh yea, I did 9 jars total. One of them will be opened almost immediately, hubby says he's going to take it to work! :) I'll be putting more up in about a week. The cucumbers are going nuts on us here. Must be the year of the cucumber!
I had a video of the chickens ready to put up here, but it was a tiny bit too big to allow me to post it, so I'll get another one in a few days and make sure it's smaller. The ladies are growing very fast and it won't be long now before I'll be collecting a basket of eggs every day!

If you haven't been reading the Smokey Mountain Adventure, take some time, get some coffee and sit back for a laugh! The link is here on the left. I'll be putting Chapter V up soon, so keep watching for it!
Enjoy the 'Bread and Butters'! It's time for me to hit the garden!
I'll see ya next time, down on the farm!
