The exciting part? We canned only with tomatoes from our own garden!
This year, we actually had enough tomatoes to put some by. Not in the quantities we used to, but we no longer use tat many tomatoes, so it works out.
I never really imagined that I would be able to do this -- grown my own food in quantities enough to put by.
Oh, I LOVE my life!
We got plenty of tomatoes this year, and plenty of greens. I'm disappointed with the quantities of squashes and other things, though. I'll have to work on why they were so puny this year.
(I am also pondering some winter planting this fall to save time in the spring. I definitely want to put down amendments this fall, if we can pull it off. That would save a huge amount of time in the spring!
Today, I am starting on winter holiday cards.
Nerida will bring Connor over and since it's been raining and Rod is too sick to watch the boys, I suspect that one card and a couple of ideas is as much as I can hope for -- but it's a start. We have weeks yet -- and my list isn't finalized, so a few ideas is really all we need so far.
Now, to finish the butternut pudding and get the card materials before Nerida and Connor arrive. ;)
