The weather turned cold earlier than expected.
I harvested what was left in my garden.
It wasn't much,
but I didn't want anything to go to waste.
I had some really little carrots.
I decided to try pickling them.
I like them a lot.
I had bought a box of pears to snack on.
The only problem with that, is they all get ripe at the same time.
So I found a Spiced Pear Preserves recipe online...
hoping my family likes it.
I was hoping for a longer growing season and some more cucumbers.
I have a feeling we will be running low on pickles before next years' harvest.
I would have made more of these simple garlic dill slices had I known my supply would be cut short.
I cut the seeds out of the cucumbers that got a little too big and made up this dill relish....I really can't eat a hot dog without relish...so I hope it turned out nice and tasty....
because after all that work...
I will eat it even if it isn't.
I did also squeak out 4 pints of salsa.....
which was way too much work for the meager end result.
And I guess I would prefer to not remember the two quarts of tomato juice that exploded in my canner....
but since my family was all congregated in the kitchen when that happened....
I am pretty sure it will not be forgotten any time soon.
