Canning is complete!

I'll be honest, this year's canning was a little more difficult being 8 & 9 months pregnant, and I couldn't have done it without Angie! Bless her heart... she was swinging from trees to get fruit out at the orchard, lifting most of the heavy stuff, listening to me complain for over a month, watching me eat all her candy, and putting up with all my other "wonderful qualities". Somehow we survived it together! We finished up our apples 2 days ago and were able to get 31 pints of apple sauce, 20 freezer bags of apple pie filling, 1 dehydrator full of cinnimon & sugar apples and some left over to eat! Did I mention those were FREE Gala apples too? 3 1/2 bushels! It was a blast, but I am pretty worn out. Thanks Angie for everything- I love you!
We did:

325 jars
141 bags of freezer food
