What Would Grandma Bertha Say?

Since we began this blog
my sister and I 
refer to each other now
as "Pickles" (that's me)
and "Petunia" (that's her)...

just two very strong constants
in both our lives...

Pickles
and
Petunias

Petunias planted every spring...
Pickles canned every late summer...


 Now that I've canned 300 
quarts of pickles
(all by myself!)
I feel I've earned 
my pet name of "Pickles"




 It's a proud moment...

 

What would Grandma Bertha
have said to me?

 

Something in German I'm sure...
and I would be able to 
hear the pride in her voice.


 and then she and I would sit 
and rest and talk about all that hard work...
OOOFTA!!


Thanks for stopping by,
Lisa

  5. You have been a busy girl! I wish I had that many cucumbers to put up. I didn't grow any this year but seeing your jars of goodies is making my mouth water. I think your Aunt would be very proud of you! Adding your blog to my roll. Can't wait to see what you two will be up to next.
