A Lovely Day in Ohio
It's another beautiful day here in Ohio. I just finished up the last batch of my homemade applesauce. I finished with about 43 quarts. That should last us until next year at apple harvesting time. My hubby loves his applesauce in his lunch bucket everyday! If you notice the different of the applesauce, it's the difference of apples. The darker sauce is from the red tree and the lighter comes from the golden delicious apple tree. I carry each batch of applesauce in my basket down to the pantry in my basement. It's so nice to see the jars lined up and quickly growing. So far this season I have canned home grown potatoes, green beans, applesauce, vegetable soup, grape, strawberry, and blueberry jam. I have done a bit of pumpkin for pumpkin pies and bread. I still have more do do though of pumpkin.
I would love to learn how to grow great onions. My onions never get very big. Anyone have any suggestions for growing large onions?
My cat was wondering what I was doing outside today. Guess he wanted his picture taken!
