A Summer Day in the Kitchen

Green Beans from Emma's Patch

Corn from Dayton

Beans ready to go in the freezer that is getting full of summer bounty
....strawberries, corn, broccoli, beans, lamb and chicken!

We watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on Netflix
and we read this book aloud to make the time more enjoyable!
Emma and I spent part of the day in the kitchen...doing beans and corn. It is nice to get some things tucked away for winter.  More corn coming for next week, lots more beans in garden to pick, tomatoes and peaches coming too! The book we are reading together is by one of my favorite authors, Lynn Austin.  This book is about a young girl living in the depression and in the fantasy world of books because she is a librarian until she goes to a backwoods community in Kentucky mining country.  She is thrown into lots of adventure and love too, much better even than in the books she has lived in for too long!
