Monday on the Farm
The end of August and the first part of September mark harvest time. Marcia chops onions, and the newly picked, halved and cleaned peppers await being filled.
The peppers are being readied for the oven. Tomato sauce and grated cheese are added to the filled halves. We will freeze dinner portions of these entrees and will enjoy them all winter long!!
The evening was canning-peaches time. A warm water bath loosens the skin for peeling, and the jars are filled and capped. A 30-minute boiling in the canning kettle prepares the fruit for storage.
The completed product appears. We have a good quality crop this year (blemish and bruise free!), and the result is picture-perfect sealed jars. Yum! Yum!!
