Jackson and Jordan weeded some of the in-ground beds this morning. Mr. Horn Worm has appeared and is seeking to devour our tomato plants. Jeff and Jordan have resorted to sevin dust, but is there a more organic remedy that will actually work? I would hate to lose my tomatoes!
We have lots of cucumbers coming in--this is a first for us. Can I make pickles with regular cukes or do you have to have pickling cucumbers?
This is a partial glimpse of my weekend. 19 quarts of pinto beans are now ready for a quick meal, 19 half-pints of strawberry jam and a dozen pints of blueberries ready for cobblers. I also froze 7 quarts of blueberries and have a quart of strawberry puree to make fruit leather later. I have about 28 pounds of peaches to start on today and our blueberries are ready to pick this week as well. It a blessed and busy time!
