Canning season has begun!!
Canning season has started. Our cucumbers were going crazy. We picked enough that I canned 2 quarts before the cucumbers went bad. Then the cucumber vines started to die off. We didn't see any bugs so we have no idea why. they died.
We went to a produce auction. I got 5 pecks of pickling cucumbers and 2 of candy onions. G cleaned out the girls barn while I canned.
Spent one day and canned 44 quarts of Kosher Dill pickles
I have been freeze drying every day. The 2 end trays are garlic and herb goat cheese. The middle tray is bell peppers and Fresnos Red Chili peppers
Finished trays. The cheese was crunchy but very dry. I said it was like eating flavored packing peanuts but friends of ours liked them. They said it would be good on a salad. Might try that. Or reconstitute it for a marinade.
Finished bell peppers and herb cheese
Basil ready to go into the freeze dryer, I also did dill, parsley, oregano and thyme.
Broccoli, bell peppers, Fresnos red chili and jalapenos ready to go to the freeze dryer
Picking the few weeds. Love the woven weed mat
The garden is a jungle
Some in the bags are doing great. Others not so much The crimson Sweet watermelons are dying
We keep tying up the tomatoes but they are going nuts We have green tomatoes but only 1 ripe one that something ate half of it. Probably our hated squirrel
Cabbage is growing nice
My mystery melon in a bag is a cantaloupe. I have 2 kind growing so I don't know which kind it is
Our sunflowers are probably over 10 feet tall
My other mystery melon growing in a pot on the patio. I'm pretty sure this is a Sugar Baby watermelon
We will once again be at the Sunbury Farmers Market Sat 9-12. We would love to have you stop by
How was your week?
