Plans for the Week

We've just finished picking the last of the blackberries - it's so hot here they're just withering on the canes.  I've frozen several pint bags to use for cobblers throughout the year and will be using the rest to make freezer jam.  The cucumbers are coming fast and furious so I'm going to make some refrigerator pickles.  I'm not big on canning.  A couple of years ago I spent a lot of time canning dill pickles and spaghetti sauce.  To tell the truth, it just didn't seem worth all the time and effort.  I know that by freezing everything, I'm at the mercy of continuous power in the wintertime but I'll just take my chances.
