I've been putting up the gardens all fall and after one more bushel of tomatoes today, I'm done.
The shelves are full of beautiful canned goods from maple syrup, sauces, relishes, veggies, juices, salsas and fruits, our 106 yr. old basement, as it is, has been cleaned 90 %, and we are feeling a healthy satisfying exhaustion. Our grandson, Syrus, helped to fill the shelves as well as the jars as he was the one squeezing applesauce, stomping saurkraut, picking tomatoes, and licking the foam from the jelly spoon. He is going to be quite the gardener some day. He sure loves to help and does such a wonderful job. We wish you all a glorious sunshiny day and God's Blessings be yours.
