This is a sample of our first crop. Harvesting time is bitter sweet. There is so much work involved in canning and perserving. Although I love being able to go to the garden and get all the fixins for salsa or dinner or to satisfy cravings. Timmy sure loves to pick onions even if they are still the size they started. Wesley is a big help in picking the right sized cucumbers for pickles and making sure Timmy knows if they are ready or not. We have already canned 30+ quarts of pickles, lots of apricot jam, and squash. We are getting ready to do applesauce and when our pears are ripe will can them as well.
