Nah, I doubt it!
However, I did spend a wonderful day with one of my best friends and her husband and my family in the country on Saturday. We picked vegetables, canned pickles, fed ducks and catfish and had a great time, despite the heat!
I love the idea of a garden and all those fresh veggies so readily available. I love how country neighbors trade tomatoes for pickles and garlic for corn. I love washing the dirt off the potatoes then cutting them up to roast. I do love all of it.
I also know how hard my friend and her husband work and I know my own limitations. I am lazy. I do just about what is required of me and often little else. I am raising 3 babies and working hard at being a deliberate, godly parent. That is enough of an energy expenditure for me at this point in my life. Perhaps in a future season I will get my hands dirty in the soil and make homemade zucchini bread. Today I am happy enough slicing fresh summer squash to keep in my freezer. God's world is so grand. I am thankful to be able to witness so many aspects of it.
PS.....Have you ever canned anything?
