Harvest Time

Harvest time has been good to us this year. Many people have been very generous in the sharing of their produce, and the free blackberries all over town and the neighbor's plum tree hanging over my fence in the backyard have kept me busy. Every year I want to do something with all the plums, and this year I have finally been able to turn them into fruit leather and prunes thanks to the dehydrator.

Next on the list is salsa, zucchini relish, peaches and applesauce. The canner will be tired by weeks's end.

Oh, and that's not my picture by the way. I found it and was just intrigued by what kind of weird junk these people are putting in their jars and canning.

You are one busy woman! I just canned some tomatoes...isn't this time of year great? I will email you my recipe for dill pickles too, I haven't forgotten that I need to send that to you.

Zucchini relish? That is intriguing. I killed my zucchini plant. I couldn't handle the bounty. And now I am ready to kill off my yellow pear tomatoes for the same reason.

I really should figure out the canning thing.
