We did some canning/freezing this year. A dozen jars of tomatoes, tons of acorn squash and wax beans in the freezer. Kathryn made an elderberry-honey-brandy “elixir” which turned out quite nice. Kathryn’s motto now being “spoon your way to health!” a la Lucy Ricardo. Kathryn also made some elderberry-apple jam that is a knock out. Having discovered numerous patches of elderberry on our property, she has been determined to make use of it.
I hoed the garden in an effort to minimize the amount of weeding that I will have to do next spring. The dark spot in the middle of the garden is the left-over leaves from the worm bucket. I released those fish worms that did not end up as catfish bait.
All that’s left in the garden is a row of Brussels Sprouts.
They will continue even past the 1st snow. I think they get better after a few frost.
