Gardening Update

My garden at home is flourishing...
Watermelons are coming on
Tomatoes are about done for this season
Beets, corn, and cucumbers are about ready to harvest
Peppers are going crazy

My land garden is giving me tomatoes and the melons are coming on also. My corn is struggling a little but surviving.

I am excited as I prep my ground an plant my cantalops and pumpkins for the fall harvest. that a word???


WOW!! Where do I begin???

First my week began by making Applesauce. I had a bunch of apples off a friends tree, so I made applesauce. Then on Tuesday I taught a strawberry jam class for my ward and a couple friends. Then Wed not much except clean up the mess from Mon and Tue. Then on Thursday I made banana bread and muffins, dehydrated some herbs and prepared for Friday.

My friend Erin will be coming down on Friday and we will canning more stuff.
We will be doing:
Strawberry Jam
Mixed Berry Jam
Grape Jelly

I love this time of year, but it is also a very busy time.
