put it up
recently added to the blackberry jam was a batch of Ashley's lavender-peach butter (altered slightly by using pomona's pectin and thus roughly 1/2 - 1/3 the sugar), and first batches of curried zucchini pickles and dilly beans. then yesterday day Mike made a gallon of refrigerator pickles and (after picking 22 pounds of blueberries nearby) I made a double batch of blueberry jam.
there was also a gluten-free blueberry galette-meets-pie dish turned out, and a gallon so far in the freezer. 'tis the season. tomorrow morning we're leaving town for nearly two weeks, and I'm trying to get the garden as organized and tidy as I can before we go. I still need to tend to some elderberries, freeze a ton of greens, and process a bunch of pesto, but it's coming along. the onions and garlic are all pulled and curing, the butternuts and pumpkins and peppers can tend to themselves, and we've got a couple folks coming by to check on the chickens, tomatoes, green beans, etc while we're away.
