We did two pickings this week and canned Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoon. Here's the updated totals.
Another good picking of the tomatoes this past week which means we have passed the century mark on those and now up to 119.46 lbs for the year. The plants are looking pretty bad though so there will be some changes upcoming this weekend. I have some Early Girl plants that I am putting in place of the Romas. We also got a smattering of green beans, peppers, and a big eggplant. One thing that has continued to do well are the peppers, They must love all of the rain we have been getting, which is about 9-10" above normal where we live.
And this is not all of the canned products we have done! Bigger stove!
One thing I did get this year and has been totally worth it is a new tomato processor. Not the most fancy but it works great.
This past Saturday after moving the kids I broke down and mowed the yard in the rain. Sunday was 10% chance so I waited until about noon and hit it again and got it looking somewhat decent. If I'd waited any longer I would have had to bail it.
And of course with 10% chance we still got rain. Can't eliminate squash bugs when it rains all of the time.
WOF of the Week. It's been a while for these showings but I will make an effort to do them more often. Like I said we moved the kids into their new place near his base and we had an old kitchen table that Amy used for scrapbooking, one that we were giving them. We took the legs off of it and set it down in the living room until we needed it for loading. Look what we found.
Be sure to visit Daphne's Dandelions to see other Harvest Mondays.
Until next time keep your wood down kids.
