    Theresa has been canning up a storm the last few days, mostly tomatoes. She purchased an automatic pressure canner, which she says works great! She just loves to try the latest gadgets. ;)

    I have been juicing my beets with tomatoes and cukes. I have never tasted such sweet beets. I did not think this would be so with all of this never ending heat of the summer.

    Wow, What a great place to be. I have been layed up for the whole summer and have not been able to grow a garden right nor have I been able to but up any food this year. Last Sept I had 1500 jars of food in my pantry for our future. I do can enough food for 3 years at a time so I am not going to be hurting for not canning this summer. It will happen next summer. Now my pantry is half stocked.

    1500? Good for you. You had a bad year (hope you are ok now) but you were prepared and can make it up next year.

    Wow!
    I'm embarrassed to say I've canned 10 quarts of applesauce. :lol:

    But wait, I've also dehydrated about 4 gallons of apples! Haha.

    Yes! I got a garden wagon full, plus a 20 gallon muck bucket full from the front 4 trees, and my two in back just started producing this year, so I probably got 15 to 20 pounds from them.
    Those two are named varieties, and I was certain one was Honeycrisp, but now I don't know. It doesn't look like a Honeycrisp to me. I'll have to dig around in my different tag bags and see if I can find their tags.
    At any rate , whatever they are, they were all unblemished, except the fake Honeycrisp which had spots on the skin. That tree is also an aphid magnet.
