So far the fruits of our labors are paying off. We started canning this week. It started out with Green beans (planted jade beans this year and they taste much better than blue lake or contender) We have 20 quarts sofar and the bushes are still putting out. A friend of ours has a truck farm and he made us come and pick tomatoes, 3 5 gallon bucket full. We are finishing those up this morning. I got some cabbage while there and started a crock of kraut (first time for me so we will see how that turns out). My MIL sent us half a bushel of peaches so we made peach pie filling and peach butter. We also recieved about 4 dozen ears of corn, they got put in the freezer.
My garden isnt doing much this year. The cukes were stunted and only made little golf ball size fruit. I tilled them under and replanted some other cukes this week. Okra is is slow to grow also. I could not plant in that area untill it dried up and that was a month after the upper garden dried so maybe its just late. The beans are putting out great, I ma getting about 2 5 gal buckets a week off of them.
Howt is everybody elses canning going?
