The garlic is still not planted, and there’s lots to be done in the garden, but I am still fighting this cold. In the meantime, I am doing what I can inside to get ready for the final harvest in the garden. Namely, cleaning out the fridge and freezers to make space for new produce. Out with the old, in with the new…
Yesterday I pulled out all the forgotten bags of berries from the bottom of the freezer and cooked up several batches of blackberry/strawberry jam. It turned out delicious, and now I have more open freezer space to fill with chopped bell peppers, or chili, or blanched greens, or whatever else I need to squeeze in there.
Hopefully I’ll be back outside and in the garden soon!
