I will be canning this weekend.  I was able to get a great price on dried beans this past week (and will get some more before the sale is over) and plan to can some of them this weekend.

I also have about three ladies that I know that are telling me that they want me to teach them to can this summer.  That's scary on my part.  Of course, I am going to school to teach elementary kids, so I think I should be able to teach three adults how to can. :-)

I am also itching to start planning the garden for this summer.  I want to try a few new things to see if it makes a difference.

Also, I am determined to get the chicken coop up this spring! 

What are all of you planning and/or working on?

The month so far....

The menu has been working out very nicely.  I have not been following it 100%,  but it is more than switching days around than anything else. :-)

That is what the menu is for, isn't it?  I think so anyways.....
