Getting Ready

I feel like it has been a while since I updated my blog. I have been very busy the past couple of weeks.
I went , with a friend, picking at Hand Melon Farm.I will not plant a garden again, not as long as Hand Melon Farm lets you pick. They charge $15.00 a bushel, $2.00 for the bushel, and you fill it up over flowing. I got two bushels, one all tomatoes the other eggplant and red and green peppers. With the tomatoes from the garden I frosze 8 gallon bags of tomatoe sauce , 4 quart bags of diced. I still have maore in my garden and a bowl full now on my counter.I am making spaghetti sauce tomorrow and freezing it. I have 3 gallon bags of breaded and fried eggplasnt slices, 3qt. pepper slices and a gallon diced pepper. That is just a real good start, we have a pig on order froma friend who raises them. On top of that we are going back to Hand Melon farm Saturday, weather permiotting.
I am very excited also cause we found someone to cut and slpit our wood. I think he will start in about 2 weeks . We have about a cord int the shed now.

Our little garden has worked fine for the two of us. We still have tons of green tomatoes that are now tipping over the cages. I have only canned once. I made spaghetti sauce one summer and when we moved in Sept. Wm. suggested we leave them in the cellar for the new owner. Thus, it was my only attempt at canning!
Wow, that is some haul you got at Hand Melon farm. I will be waiting to hear how today's trip goes.
