2010 Harvest

22 lbs (10 kilos) of sauerkraut

14 quarts (14 litres) of mincemeat

7 bags of carrots for the freezer

2 litres of fermenting carrots

2 litres of kimchi

13 jars of nectarine jam

12 pints (500 ml) of pears

13 quarts of dill pickles

12 pints of bread and butter pickles

12 pints pickled hot peppers

12 pints pickled green tomatoes and hot peppers

18 pints of salsa

Lost count of peas and beans canned and frozen

12 pints of canned corn

6 bags of tomatoes for the freezer

12 quarts of canned tomatoes

12 pints of canned cherries

2 bags of cherries for the freezer

7 bags of cabbage for the freezer

5 bags of shredded zucchini for the freezer

I still have to work on the leeks and pumpkins

I'm not sure how many potatoes we have - probably around 50 lbs (22 kilo). Our potatoes did not do well this year, I think because of our extremely hot summer they didn't get enough water.

Plus we ate a lot of fresh vegetables from the garden this year.

Vegetables we planted that did not do well (mostly likely as they were early varieties that were fooled by the heat):
  • Radish
  • Mustard Greens
  • Arugula
  • Spinach
  • Swiss Chard
  • Turnips
  • Corn (that is a challange as it is in our climate)
  • Kale
  • Beets

Wow, you have been busy! Being so busy with the wedding and then starting part time classes while working I did not get as much canning done as I would like this year but I made sure I at least did some. It is so wonderful knowing you prepared what you are about to use to make your meal and it tastes so much better than store bought!
