Can you feel it? I step outside and yes, I can feel it. The thermometer says 85, but the feel of the wind says harvest. It stirs in me and I love it.
I canned wild blueberry jam yesterday, and some beet pickles. I sliced up a bunch of garlic and onions and have that in the dehydrator along with savory, marjarom and lovage. Today I hope to dehydrate peas and beans, weed the tomatoes, mow the lawn, dust, laundry, sew a skirt and welcome my honey home. He's been over the road again. I love this weather. I have energy.
With all of the dehydrated vegies, I'm making a soup mix. A bit of carrots, corn, peas, beans, garlic, onions, lovage, herbs. Then when I want soup, just put some in a pot with some water and meat-viola! soup.
Our two older daughters have been berry crazy this year. They go out almost every day and pick. With their help we have put up almost fifty pints of berries. Our two youngers are out doing chores right now. They get up, eat, get dressed, and out the door they go. So nice to have all of the chores done when I get outside. 'Nuff bragging on my kids.
So how's your harvest coming? What do you put up for winter?
