Everything needs to be canned at once! First it was pears, then tomatoes, plums, and now grapes. Frost got the garden about a week ago so I am doing clean up. I've made pear butter, a prune spread, dried a lot of plums and have made lots of juice. Canned 7 quarts and 4 pints of tomatoes and still have some ripening in boxes. Ron rototilled the side where the garlic will go, mixing 2 pickup loads of compost into the rows. Yesterday I pulled out the last of the tomato plants and am concentrating on removing all of the weeds with seedheads from the north side of the garden before we rototill there. The cornstalks will be shredded and go underground. Beets and onions are still in the ground where they will keep better until I can do something with them. This coming week we will start planting garlic. I might have to try to buy back some of what I sold if the buyer hasn't already resold it because I might be short of seed stock. I need to break up the bulbs and count the cloves.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
