And she’s preparing for the future with this canning of peaches! Her actions tell me she is planing to be around to eat them.
She is believed to be the oldest person still living alone, in farmhouse near Potsdam, Minn., 15 miles north of Rochester, the newspaper reports. She won’t even let someone come in to help her clean. She recently canned peaches and froze sweet corn for the winter.
Of course, the other option is that she’s acting out of habit, out of ‘if its fall, it’s canning season’ niggling necessity born of repetition, but I’d prefer to think of this as an act of optimism.
Someone recently mentioned Anna Stoehr to me and I’m not sure who that was, but if you see this post, say ‘hey’ at me, ok?
