Bird Love

I love birds. My friend gave me a bird feeder last Christmas & I have been feeding them since. I love seeing all the different kinds of birds come to the feeder. The dove's make me laugh. They are so big sitting on the feeder. At times I have seen all three of them on it, it is quite a sight.

For awhile I have wanted to try my hand at drawing/painting some birds. I love how Dina Wakley does her birds. They are so colorful & beautiful. So this is my first try at drawing some birds. The head is shaped kinda funny but I am happy with it.

So It was time to do some dilly beans. They are hubbys favorite. We only have a few jars left of last years, because he likes taking them to work & sharing. So we headed to Day's farm and picked a box of beans. We were able to can 35 pints of the Dilly Beans. Yummo!

I also wanted to try some cauliflower. So I made a little extra of the pickeling brine and poured it over some cauliflower. We got 3 pints out of 1 head.

We also wanted to try the brine on some cucumbers. So Craig went and got a dozen cukes. We got 6 quarts from the dozen cukes. We tried them yesterday with dinner & they are good. Next time we would leave the skins on. I didn't take a picture of the cukes. Oops :)
