Last bounty for 2010


Thank goodness! This is the last "Canning" for 2010...remember those pretty Red cabbage!, well Cecil covered them up just about evening in hopes they would "head Up".
Well they didn't "head up" and if we wanted to salvage them, I'd better get my butt in gear and go out in the cold and rescue them before the snow, sleet and rain they said was coming and Kill them.  Yesterday I did just that, They were cold and some leaves were "cold frosted" but were worth claiming.. I managed to get six good sized bags with about 1 1/2 lbs each from the total of the Red, Savoy and regular Cabbage. Not too bad for a first year of raising cabbage..Maybe next year will be better ..we now know to plant about the second week in August for fall cabbage to "head up" :o).. I was able to put the packs into one container so I could keep track of them in the freezer...by the way the "New Baby" worked out fine...so far  I haven't gotten many choices of names for "New Baby" to select from...everyone is busy with Christmas preparations..Well, at least I won't be canning . ( I think ;o)
This would be a good time to wish you all a Merry Christmas,  Prosperous New Year and Good Feasting!
