Christmas Pickles

Been a crazy week! I canned
24 quarts of Tomatoes,

7 quarts of spaghetti sauce,

12 pints of pickles

(pickles for my brother's and sister's Christmas presents).
Then, I started peaches. After spending $50.00 on peaches at the farmer's market, I got home only to find the boxes were mealy peaches. You can't can mealy fruit, it turns to mush in the jars. So, I have a bunch of peaches that I can't do anything with and still have to spend $50.00 more to get good peaches! It was a week of great accomplishments, but it ended on a sour note.
