And more. . .

Of course you know what I mean by that.  More cukes. More zukes. Some beets and carrots. And yesterday another CSA box. And then Trevor picked up a box of peaches from the local church youth organization. Our fridge is literally full of fresh produce.

And there are a few boxes and bags of things that just simply won’t fit anymore.

I’m pretty sure I know what I’ll be doing this weekend! That’s right, you guessed it:  canning, canning, and then maybe a bit of canning. 😉

Oh no, I’m really not complaining.  Feeling a bit overwhelmed by the sheer of mass of it, but still thrilled to have it. And I know that, this winter, it will be wonderful to get a bag of “fresh” frozen peas, beans, or corn out of the freezer for making a tasty meal. And it will be wonderful to be able to open a jar of home-made pickles.  Carrot pickles, green bean pickles, cucumber pickles, zucchini pickles–I’ll pickle just about anything. I think I’m going to try a new one (new to me, anyway, but from the classic Ball Blue Book of Canning): End of the Garden Pickles.  It’s got broccoli, carrots, onions, peppers, and I can’t remember what all.  But it sounded like a great way to preserve some of this wonderful bounty!

I may have to actually start canning in the evenings this week, so the produce doesn’t all wait for Saturday. But it should be a very full (and fulfilling) weekend! :)
