70 bags of Freezer corn + tired feet!

On Monday, for FHE, we went to the 2 church gardens that we have here in town and picked corn. We went at 5:00 PM which was a 95 degree mistake, but we came home with enough corn to eat for dinner for 5 nights, + I was able to get 40 bags of freezer corn from it too, which I did this morning. (the picture is of my 40 bags)
My friend Angie came over around lunch time and we took the herd of kids to the garden and picked corn for her family and was able to get 30 bags finished for her! It was a fun, long and productive day! Did I mention we canned 21 quarts of peaches yesterday too? Thanks Angie's Mom for the peaches! Let the long days of canning begin, and Lord, forgive me now for the amount of TV I'm going to allow my kids to watch over the next month, just so I can get it all done!

I'm going to keep all my canning #'s here for the Summer...
Here's what I've done so far!
