Mmmm... pears are one of my favorites! I only got a few this year so I am so jealous that you have enough for butters and canned!
My peaches did ok. They are still young trees like the pears, but there was enough for a few treats.
Glutton for punishment is more like it!
I'm on this insane mission to try and feed my sone only the best and healthiest foods I can.
Can't grow good white cauli worth a darn as all it does is feed the cabbage worms and look disgusting! But the green and purple varieties seem to do better and I love how the purple one looks and tastes.
The Broc is "Green Goliath" variety and puts the "Pacman" variety to shame! Uh huh... I got suckered into buying those wittle bitty cutie broccoli plants (Pacman) at he beginning of the season from the store while waiting for my own seedlings to grow..... never again!
*Chants... I will start all my own broccoli plants... I will start all my own broccoli plants...*
My toms are still going too... da*n things are like weeds! I dry my tom sauce and after I had put up the equivalent of about 20 or 30 quarts I had to quit looking at them lest I go stark raving mad.
Thought I'd even try to make Honeyed Yellow Tomato Butter..... ....
Turned out to be a sticky mess and was renamed BBQ base!
Green toms in paper in the barn? Hmm that's a new one on me.
I'll poke around and see if I have anymore pictures of the tom jungle this year.
