Finished with Fruit
I don't have any pictures from my past week of extreme canning. A few warm days meant that all the pears, peaches, and tomatoes ripened at once. I canned like a crazy person, making caramel bosc pear jam, canned pear halves, vanilla bartlett jam, unsweetened bartlett pearsauce (like applesauce), tomato salsa, and peach salsa. I got all of the fruit free through LURC but I will be giving a percentage of the product back to the tree owners. The only things remaining to be canned this season are some more tomatoes and maybe some pickled jalapenos. I think that's enough. Ok, maybe I'll make some marmalade in December.
The garden is a little messy looking, but I'm still getting lots of green beans and peppers. The fall greens are sprouting: mache, spinach, kale, chard, arugula, radish, lettuce, cilantro
Below: Arugula is the first to pop up.
Henry is having a rough day. He's got a little indigestion and has been eating grass, so of course he's very worried about messing in the house.
