It’s that time of year again:
Our garden is overflowing, the rode side orchards are selling fresh veggies and produce.
Here we are Harvesting!
We planted ONE zucchini plant and one yellow squash.
They both became HUGE! We pulled them out and at the beginning of September.
Karen and Karl, watched us work.
I had to go and get another bowl.
What would we do with all of those tomatoes?
Salsa making party!!!
Ohh so good.
BUT even after all of that salsa, we still had all that Zucchini!
Not to worry!
We made Zucchini bread! We gave it to all of the families we visit teach and home teach.
Then, the pieceta reistance, something I have wanted to do for years…Can Peaches.
So on Saturday morning, we headed over to Allred Orchards, and bought four boxes of peaches.
We cleaned everything…
Blanched the peaches, and cut them.
Then we put them in the sterilized jars, and added our homemade syrup.
HOURS later, we were still there.
My hands had never been so wrinkled from being wet. But, we were making some progress.
We were done.
We started at 10, and were done around 7 PM. What did we have to show for it?
40 large jars, and 9 little jars of fresh home made canned peaches.
My food storage has been infused.
We are still going to make some peach fruit leather, and can some tomatoes. After that, the skys the limit.
