the corn process wasn't nearly as bad as i thought it was. we picked sooooo much corn out on our farm and husked it the night before, and then trae and i got up super early and had it all done by 11 am. it was so good to have trae help, seriously would have taken me 15 hours without his help. we are still enjoying fresh corn on the cob but can't wait to dig in our freezer and enjoy it the rest of the year.

next were the raspberries. i wish i could explain the awesomeness of these berries. our farm has 18 rows, each about 75+ yards long, full of the most amazing raspberries. meag went out and picked yesterday and got 2 gallon buckets full on one row. it takes forever to pick but i am so in love with raspberries it's always worth it. i have enough jam to keep me happy this next year, enough frozen in my freezer for smoothies and desserts and will probably keep picking until i am sick of seeing raspberries or until they stop growing, which ever comes first. they are seriously the size of small strawberries. these were my pickings last week.
i didn't document salsa making, but i dont think i'm done yet. trae's grandparents bring up bags of tomatoes to us daily. i think i might try marinara sauce or something else with the rest. hopefully peaches are next and last, and i hope i can get them done before baby girl makes her debut. oh man, i can't wait for peaches!
here are a few just for fun.
as for baby girl news, she is still growing, and so am i. i'm the girl who hopes this baby stays put until at least my due date, if not past. i think i'm getting a little nervous and want her to stay put for as long as possible. i'm kinda having the same problem as my first pregnancy and continually measuring a few weeks behind. i had a ultrasound a few days ago just to make sure everything is still okay. i'm a little low on amniotic fluid again, but not yet to the point where they are super worried. i'm crossing my fingers that i dont have to get started early. she's a little bit small but looks healthy! can't wait to meet her, well i can wait a little bit longer, but i am getting super excited!
i really do hate pregnant pictures of myself but because i was just searching my blog/computer for a picture of me pregnant with avery and couldn't find one except for right before delivery i decided to take one. i'm about 35 weeks here but this was in the morning and by night i think i about double in size.
