About all I’ve gotten done in the last few days is canning: Plum-raisin spread, relish, peach jam and green beans. In consequence, my back aches, but I keep telling myself the pain will be worth it when we eat our produce this winter. Our tomatoes are finally beginning to ripen and our peppers are nearly ready to pick. When they are ready, they’ll go into jars as well.
I’m not putting up any more cucumbers. We have enough relish now for three years of eating. Our church has a produce exchange every Sunday morning and whatever cukes are left are going into that.
The peaches come from the neighbors’ tree, which is loaded. I hope to can more of them.
Then in the winter, we can sing “Yummy, yummy, yummy, we’ve got food in our tummies!”GHTime Code(s): ee7cc
