Harvest gems

One of the things that got left behind when we went to Battlemoor was harvesting the garden. Mom watered, but that was about it. So, we have spent the last few days gathering ripe tomatoes, green beans and squash. There will be more to come, but at least the great squash explosion has slowed down. The cherry tomato riot is being tackled daily. I picked 20 last night.

I worked in the garden this morning. I did a lot of weeding and harvesting. This is what I brought in.

I’m freezing some things and will be making tomato chutney. Plums are next on the harvest list. The tree is so heavy that the limbs have bent. The frustrating part for me is that most of my canning stuff is in storage, including the jars. sigh…

  1. Your efforts reminded me of stories I have been told of when gran died. My mum told me there were enough jams pickles,chutneys and bottled fruit and veg to keep her son and cousin Jenny supplied for almost three years.

  2. I have to admit that after being hungry, really hungry, I have that mindset. My inner voice says “Preserve! Can! Freeze! Dry!” Plus, it all tastes so good.
