Canning & Season Preparations

photo 1photo 2 photo 3

We are well into our canning process.  Tomorrow I will can our peaches and we are set then until the apples, pears and tomatoes are ready in September. 

Canned we have strawberry jam, raspberry preserves, canned cherries, dilly beans, dill pickles, and blueberry sauce.  We will do peaches, applesauce (plain and berry), carrots, and tomatoes in the next few weeks.

In the freezer we have flash frozen peppers, onion, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, broccoli, beans, peas and soon we will have butternut squash, brussel sprouts, and a few tomatoes.

Frozen we have cherry pies, blueberry pies and will add apple pies when season hits.

Potatoes should be about 30+ lbs of white potatoes and 20 of red potatoes when we harvest in 2 weeks.  I grew these in containers and they are so heavy now I can barely lift them.

We purchased a meat package from the local butcher today and stocked the freezer.

This week we will get 10 cord of wood dropped and will spend a night with a few friends treating them to some beers and pizza and stock the woodshed. 

And who says life is boring!!  It sounds like a lot of work but we fit in our play time too!!

  1. A full and busy time, indeed. Way to go with all that canning. I will only make apple jelly this year. But for me, making apple jelly is a meditation and a joy when I give the jars to friends.
