2 bowls of tomato’s harvested yesterday. I’m becoming a bit tired of canning tomato’s but know we will really enjoy using them these next few months in soups, stews and on pasta’s Another 14 quarts and 5 more pints cooling on the table
Just to get out of the house I went for a drive yesterday & found a “new to me” road side market. Her tomato’s were $1.00 each! I maybe in the wrong business! I did purchase 3 lbs of onions, half yellow and half red to dehydrate for $2.00. The local grocery had 1 lb of either type for $3.99 this morning!
I also picked up more peaches. $10.00 for 1/2 a bushel. Again less than half the price at our local grocery. These will be halved and sliced for canning this afternoon.
Apple sauce and peaches I need to have a good stock of as they seem to be Isaiah & Mr.Fix-It’s favorite evening snack in the winter…that is unless there is pie or ice cream in the house!
It’s a beautiful morning, a nice breeze to keep the humidity down so far & mid 70’s. Coolest its been all month! I guess I can’t say that as its a new month but it the nicest morning in a month anyway. I’ve been enjoying my coffee outside pulling weeds here and there in the neglected flowerbeds. Larry is gone for the morning helping a friend so I’m in no rush to do anything with purpose
I think I’ve decided on a permanent area for an herb garden. This year I have them all in pots and they have done “OK” but, know they could do so much better in the ground not pots.
Well, the day’s a wasting so I need to get busy, more zucchini to shred and freeze…maybe even a peach pie for desert!
Have a great day!
