Here is the run down from the past week:
We defrosted the meat freezer last week and I found a couple of turkey carcasses waiting to be turned into broth. So I got busy, made broth and canned 23 pints.
The Zephyr Squash (remember them?) are in kill-me mode. So far I have put 24 4-cup bags in the freezer. That's in addition to what we are eating.
The cucumbers are in full swing. So far I am on day eight of a batch of fourteen-day pickles and have put up 7 quarts of quick sweet pickles. This makes my sister-in-law very happy.
I'll post more about this later, but we have also harvested a good supply of potatoes, including Russets, Yukon Golds, and Reds. Should be enough to last until we harvest our second planting in the winter.
The beans are not being as productive this year...
...and the peas are only just now getting ready. Eggplant, okra and melons are coming along. The herbs are (mostly) doing very well. Now if I can just find a minute to get out there and harvest them for drying...
Best of all, the artichokes are still alive and thriving!
