It has been a busy week here at Hickery Holler! A new computer that I haven't even really had time to play with yet. Lots of canning and freezing and lots yet to do. The evenings here have dropped to the 60's lately and we are wondering if there will be an early fall. Cooler temperatures have presented quite the challenge getting those heat loving crops to bear and ripen. We have two rows of okra and probably haven't picked 2 cups. They seem to languish in the cooler temperatures. June blackberries in August and my spring cabbage is just now heading up. We are not quite sure what happened to summer. It seems to have briefly visited and moved on.
Yes I am just now harvesting broccoli and continue to freeze it regularly.
The tomatoes are coming on with a vengeance and we are hoping to get as many ripe as possible before that first frost but it may be close..
O Wise One continues to enjoy his Sunday fishing trips and our supply of fish fillets in the freezer is multiplying!
As for me I have my hands full with peaches, 3 buckets of red beans to be shelled and a drawer full of zucchini, yellow squash and onions.
So I will set these posts to automatically post and see everyone on Monday.
Have a safe and restful weekend.
Blessings from The Holler
