Canning day

Had a light frost Friday. Pulled everything up in the garden. Had a lot of green tomatoes. Yesterday we canned green tomato chutney, green tomato pickles, and rhubarb chutney. It will taste good later on. We have apples to do something with, and squash in the freeze that we will can. Froze it during the summer when we didn't want to heat up the house. Also dehydrating some chives, Had a pretty good batch for only two plants. Have some other herbs to put up also.
Now that we have had a light frost it is turning back into almost summer again. In the 80's and 90's again this week.

  1. You are right about not wanting to heat up the house in the summer time. We have that problem. But it is cold and windy here today. Would have been a good time to try our canning experiment but my wife didn't have time.

  2. We have an outdoor stove we can use if needed. Didn't have a good garden this year so didn't do a lot of summer canning.
