Harvest Monday 10/03/11

Things are continuing to go slow when it comes to harvesting.  Did get a few things this week and am starting to get things preserved for winter what was harvested earlier.
Of the potatoes I dug had 5 pounds 11 oz of little potatoes that won't keep so canned them.
What few onions I got were so small I canned them.  Not much to show for a whole bed of onions.
6 quarts of tomatoes
4pounds 8 oz of green peppers

2 more pints of salsa from cherry tomatoes

 Last of the tomato seed for next year were harvested and fermented now drying.
Don't forget to visit the host of Harvest Monday
and see what others harvested this week. 


  1. You sure have been busy. I have not pressure canned potatoes in quite a few years. They are so handy to have on hand though.

  2. It looks like you have been very busy! Boy, I wish that I had a pressure canner. Those canned potaotes would sure come in handy during the winter!

  3. Laura yes I love the canned potatoes in a pinch when I am in a hurry or when I forget to buy potatoes.

    Robin the pressure canner is well worth the $100 investment. I use it all year. I make large pots of soup and can them as well as chili, chow mein etc. When feeding just myself and my DB it is still easier to cook a big family batch of many things and have them available for a quick meal. I also do gravy and things like that when I have it left over from a roast.
