Busy Times Ahead

I have been subbing in one of the schools in the division and I will be there for the rest of the week. Perhaps even part of the next (hopefully not cause this full time gig is going to do me in). This means harvesting the garden is left up to Harvey.

Today since we are supposed to be getting freezing temperatures.... he pulled out all the tomatoes.

This is what I have to look forward to.

A rather large bowlful of tomatoes in the kitchen.

A box of partially ripe tomatoes in the hallway.

Thank heavens there aren't too many of those.

Another box of green tomatoes.

Not too many of those either, but plenty more in the garden if I want them and we do not get the frost that has been predicted. I think I might just pass on those.

Then after supper my neighbour Irene brought us these.

A box of apples..... With the statement that if we want more just ask.

I foresee a great deal of work in the next few nights. Tomorrow I will be up to my elbows in ripe tomatoes, processing them for the freezer.

Anyone else think that I could be very busy for the next little while?

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. It will be worth the effort when you have all that lovely food preserved for later in the year. Good luck with it.

  2. I think you have your work cut out for you! But it will be worth it!
