After all these projects Owen said to me "Oh Mom! I know, we need to get some blueberries, and can them--for the winter."
He's obviously been reading Blueberries for Sal and thinks he's a genius for coming up with the idea to do the same things for ourselves. Not like preserving food for the winter isn't what I've been doing already for the last two months!
But who am I to argue with an enthusiastic 6 year old? So we went and bought some blue berries.
We canned them on Saturday since it was National Can-It-Forward Day.
Hopefully they will be good for muffins and oatmeal this winter. And hopefully Owen is getting something out of all the canning going on around here.
