It was also the first time to take the train into Minneapolis. Going in was great, but coming home was standing room only and it was hot. We survived!! LOL
On the way home, we stopped at a farmers market and I picked up 25 pounds of beets for beet pickles. So guess what I was doing on Monday.
Monday was a day spent cooking, peeling and then pickling beets. My family loves them. For quite a few years while I was working and attending school, I did not can anything. They all got very hungry for some of my pickles, especially my beet pickles. The ones in the stores just are not the same.
The jars look so pretty.
The Hummingbirds have been sucking up the nectar like crazy. Do they know something I don't???? Usually they only drink so much just before they leave for the season. Sometimes there are as many as four Hummingbirds sitting on the feeder eating at the same time. I have never seen them do that before. They are usually so busy chasing others away. Aggressive little dickens!! LOL
Since I was gone for almost a whole week, and I will be leaving the Hubby on his own again, I spent the day bumming with him. Need to spend a little time with him or he will forget what I look like!
Have a great day ---
