I am safe from the fire, it is 40% contained. About 100 homes were threatened but none were damaged or lost. We were downgraded to level 1 on Sunday and many breathed a sigh of relief…..as I did. My friend Sallie, said the fire was just across the road from her long driveway…..that would have been too much for me! I was 7 miles away and that was way too close!
Back to canning today. I am ready to can up my Bread and Butter Pickles, like those on the right. I already did 19 quarts of Dill’s, so my Zucchini Relish is next. Not sure I will get that done before I head out camping to Elk River, ID, on Thursday.
