Preparing for Fall
I hate to say it on any day where it's both sunny and in the 60s, but I can smell autumn just around the corner. In between my job, cleaning my house, and face-time with my family and friends, it's a tight squeeze for canning. I am sadly behind in my blackberry gathering. At this rate we'll run out of jam sometime in February. I did score 5 lbs of late-season pickling cucumbers, and I gave up on getting decent ripe tomatoes so I should get more green tomato pickles, but...sigh. Summer's just a busy season, no doubt about it.
