It's not here yet.... but it's coming!
I have been doing a lot of harvesting and canning in preparation for winter so that we can enjoy the goodness of our garden during the cold months. Some of the things I have been doing recently include Apple Raspberry Sauce, Egg Rolls, and Pumpkins. I also made a Fresh Pumpkin Pie the same day I processed the pumpkins.
I have discovered a not-so-new product called Tattler. They are re-usable canning lids! I have had great success with these so far.
Here are some examples of them on home-canned produce (look for the white lids). They don't make the popping sound like the metal canning lids do when they seal. You test the seal by gently trying to lift the lid after the ring is off.

|These are two potatoes with multiple side growths. Neat, aren't they?|

|This is wagon #1 (the number is on the other side, near the opening where the grain comes out).|
|Aren't I cute?|
One of our favorite school activities for science has been our nature walks. A couple weeks ago we ventured into the woods. It was a lot of fun, and probably something we will do more frequently.

|Happy to be enjoying nature.|
