I was so into my soap-making in my last post, that I forgot to tell you about getting boneless, skinless chicken breasts at Aldi, for $1.69 a pound! I bought two packs, which were very large, and canned 13 pints of chicken! That was my first time to can chicken, and it was the easiest canning I've done yet! I just packed the breasts into the hot jars, poured in boiling water, put the lids on, put them in the canner, and canned them for 1 hour and 15 minutes! Keeping the temp regulated was the hardest part, and that wasn't really hard. I will definitely be doing this again!
I'm already thinking about my garden beds for next Spring! I may take out all of the dirt and start over! That will be a huge undertaking! It the hubs can borrow a tractor, he can move some dirt up here from the woods. That will be the cheapest way! I'm not sure yet. We'll see how the weather does this fall and winter. I may just have to amend, amend and hope for the best! Hope ya'll are having a great Fall! Blessings from Bama!

|I love how the leaves are changing! There's still a lot of green, though.
|These leaves didn't show up as well since I was facing the sun.
