I ran out of my hot pepper relish, so I went to the farmers market and went crazy. I had to buy some more zucchini. I made a few mini apple pies, which I think are cute, practical, and easy to eat. If I can find some really sweet oranges, I want to make orange marmalade. Once I get started, it is hard for me to stop with this canning stuff.
Yesterday I was invited to a benefit craft show for the Littlerock library. This is what my stand looked like. I have to say I had a good time. I got to share all my goodies, and I made new friends.
As I refuse to give up on gardening, I have started a Fall garden today. This whole tray is lettuce. Bronze Mignonette and Black Seeded Simpson. They are heirloom seeds and a cut and come again crop. Fresh salads to come...I am hoping.
This tray has Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli, Snowball Cauliflower, Golden acre cabbage, and Copenhagen cabbage. Last year I got one good broccoli. Hoping to do better this time.
This tray has Swiss chard...three kinds and two kinds of kale. All heirloom. I was juicing a lot of kale this Summer. Want to grow my own so I know what is on it.
These are some of the pomegranates I started from seed. I think there are about a dozen. These will go in bigger pots in the Spring.
These pomegranates were small plants last fall when I put them in these pots. Now they are ready to be planted in the ground. I think I will wait till Spring. Maybe get the holes ready this Winter. I have four this size and one I am babysitting.
In a few years I think I will be set on enough pomegranates.
