It All Gets Ripe At Once : )

It never fails! No matter how you try to space it out it all gets ripe at once and you spend days trying to catch up. That's where we're at. Gosh we hate to complain though because so many people are not getting a harvest at all due to heat and drought. So we will just pull up our big girl panties and be thankful  !!!!!

More grapes to make into juice..... 

And cucumbers into pickles....

And squash to be frozen......

And the sauerkraut was ready to put in jars......

And green onions to be dehydrated.....

And MORE corn.....

And rabbits to be butchered....

Then the neighbor....bless his heart.... brought us 10 pounds of catfish fillets to put in the freezer : )

And no pictures of the blackberries that had to be put in the freezer and the 5 gallon bucket of red beans to be shelled... 

Is it winter yet : )

Blessings from the Holler

  1. What a wonderful harvest you have had. I would love the recipe for the sauerkraut if you would please share it.
    By the way the pictures are just beautiful! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

  2. The same thing is happening here. Marcy is canning, freezing, drying and sharing fresh produce with every one she can.

    She has tried a new recipe for dehydrated cantalope...with ginger and powered sugar. I have been priviledged to test the first batch...mmmmmm, mushmelon candy!

  3. Your posts make me hungry, CQ.
    It all looks so wonderful! I hope you're all doing well. :)

  4. I want to come live at your house at dinner time :o) What a marvelous harvest...Post that Sauerkraut recipe

  5. Seriously! No matter how wonderful the jars look, there is a point when you just can't wait for canning season to end. :-)
