Gardening and Canning

I know, I’ve been absentee here!  The garden has done great this year, I really love the new raised beds that I put in and the canning has been keeping me going!  But definitely worth all of the work…

Here are a few pictures that I took in July..

 

and here are some of the results:

Pumpkins and Spaghetti Squash

These pole beans had to be planted twice, so I am still harvesting and canning beans.

I used newspaper and straw around the pole beans (they weren’t in the raised beds this year) and it was wonderful!  The pumpkins and squash that escaped the beds lay on it, and everything is so clean!  And I can walk in the garden after watering without getting covered in mud!

Still working on the sauerkraut!

I’ll share some of my relish, salsa and other canning recipes in the next couple of posts.

Thanks for stopping by!
