Another Busy Weekend

I decided to learn how to can this weekend.  I bought a giant 33 quart pot and mason jars and went to town.  My neighbor has grapes planted along the fence along our property line, and I picked somewhere around 50 pounds of concord grapes which are now in the process of being turned into jam.  I’ve got a dozen half-pint jars so far, and that’s like 10% of my crop.  I’ve also got 5 quart jars of applesauce that might need a home in the near future.

The garage is coming along nicely as well.  It’s now got a frame structure consisting of 1x2s set up in 3 squares each 4 feet on a side along the wall right above my bench.  You can check out the most recent photos on my flickr site.   I’ve actually made more progress since those photos.  The entire structure has a coat of primer and will get a coat of paint soon.  Then the finishing touches go up and I’m good to go.  It’s exciting to be this close to finishing.
