laid to rest

We've been abundantly blessed. On Monday we picked nearly 4 bushel of peaches off our 2 peach trees. That translated to 35 quart jars and 27 quart freezer bags, plus as many as we can eat. Last night we picked a half-bushel of crabapples for jelly and left some for the birds. I also picked another another half-gallon of blackberries and more than a half-gallon of green beans to add to the 1 1/2 gallons in the fridge waiting to be canned. We've eaten corn from the garden, I made pickles this morning and have enough cukes to still make relish (and probably more pickles), and the squash plants are still producing, too. The tomatoes will be ripe before I'm ready as well, I'm sure.

Since the baby is due in 6 1/2 weeks, and last week we spent almost 2 full days in the car with a funeral in the middle, you'll understand why I'm too tired to blog it all with pictures.

I'm grateful for the harvest that the Lord has blessed us with. I'm grateful our circumstances allowed for us to travel to the funeral. I'm grateful for it all. I'm just exhausted.
