Chata and Dolores went on their first flight this year to Chicago. They did well for the most part. Chata barked at the airplane hydraulics. Dolores tried to escape, of course.
We bought a bushel of baby cucumbers ($18) from Farmer’s Market. It didn’t look like much while we were shopping. Once I started washing the cucumbers and putting them in jars I realized how many there were. We had to make a run for more jars halfway through canning. We ended up with 22 quarts. Enough to carry us through 2012.
