|Guess what we're canning today?|
Strangers also sometimes ask if I have "help". I think they mean a nanny. Er, no. I'm a farmer's wife. I AM the help. (I do have a sweet lady who cleans my house twice a month. Well, well worth it).
The other morning I had a bunch of canning to do, and a little girl too young to play out in the pasture with the big kids.
No one tell her that work isn't supposed to be fun, okay?

|One of my favorite things.|
|Another one of my favorite things.|
During the time it took me to can a batch of pickles, Charlotte "helped" me scrub cucumbers, wash (already clean) plastic dishes, my apron, her shirt, and large parts of my kitchen floor.
All the money in the world could never buy help as precious to me as this.
