Whatcha Working On Wednesday


The last couple of days have really been hectic.... yet I continue to thank God for blessing us with the fruit and veggie to harvest.

Last Saturday I froze peaches and there will be peach preserves made today.

These Damson plums were picked Monday and today they will become jam.

My brother shared some of his corn crop with us... my mother and I picked the corn...Tuesday evening I began working on it and woke up at 4:00 this morning, finished cooking and freezing the corn.

My mother-in-law shared these tomatoes with me ( my tomatoes have not ripen yet) and today they will become salsa. I have the water boiling now and soon I will start removing the peel. We use alot of salsa in Black Bean Soup, Chili, Dip, etc. Just love it!

As you can see I have a busy day ahead of me and today is my Mother's Birthday. I hope to read and comment on your post soon for some reason there has not been much time for me to
visit :0(

Have a Great Day!

Blessings,

Kathy

Wow, you're fruit and vegies are looking nice. I'm still waiting for my corn and tomatoes to ripen. We've had so much rain in Oregon the last week, I'm hoping my veggies don't get too much rain! Karen

What beautiful pictures! There is nothing more satisfying than growing and preserving your own food. I've been pretty busy as well, but I'm sure we'll all appreciate it when winter winds blow. :-)
