Canning and Sunflowers

Yesterday was a busy day.  I had my first day of outpatient physical therapy since receiving a partial hip replacement.  I was exhausted.  I used muscles that haven't been used for a LONG time.  I came home and relaxed on the recliner with an ice pack.

Eventually my cucumbers started calling to me.  So I cleaned and chopped cucumbers, peppers, and onions for relish.  I was very thankful to Little M. for the help with cleaning and chopping of the cucumbers.  It always wonderful to have a helper or two.

While the veggies were soaking in salt, hubby drove me to a nearby organic farm to pick up some produce.  For $25.00 I got 30 lbs. of canning tomatoes, 1 head of cabbage, 4 peppers, 5 lbs. of potatoes,  and 1 eggplant.  I was even given a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers.  Lovely!

When we returned home hubby, helped me finish canning the relish.  I ended up with 7 pints.
