Well, friends, today is officially the first day of Fall! The weather has cooled down enough that I pulled out my winter clothes and splurged on a cozy cardigan last week. I'm excited for the fun, coziness and comfort food that comes with the season and I can't wait to attack our Fall Bucket List!
With the advent of fall comes the end of summer. Our large garden was very good to us this year, and we were able to can and freeze plenty of produce for the winter. While I love the fresh fruit and veggies of summer, I'm kind of glad for a break from the busy canning and preserving season. We still have applesauce to can and pumpkins/butternut squash to puree and freeze, but that will come at a slightly more leisurely pace. Hooray for fall!
Garden Update:This should be the last garden update of the season. The tomatoes are pretty much done, and Hubby plans to pull the plants up this week. We still have some kale, peppers, butternut squash, blackberries, and raspberries, but they should be finishing up quickly too.
This week we harvested:
