Canning the Garden

Kathryn has been canning in the wanning days of summer

  • 26 quarts of peaches
  • 29 pounds of blueberries
  • 12 quarts of cherries
  • 29 pints of green and yellow wax berries
  • 3 pints of elderberry jam and 3 pints of elderberry tonic
  • 7 quarts of tomatoes

While we were in Utah the rabbits ate the beans down, but they recovered nicely and we are now drowning in green beans.


If you are at our house this Thanksgiving there is a good chance that green beans will be on the menu.


The cook had some spirits to help her get through the process.


Yummy tomatoes.  Probably there will be more to come.
