Late night. Got home from work and figs were ready to pick and be canned (they dont last long once ripe). Made 8 pints. I love them but will send these to my Mom in TX who also loves them. Didnt use sugar, the figs themselves are sweet as candy but did add some honey for flavor.

Very nice. Canning season is upon us, I'm about to be swamped with tomatoes. Just did 80 pounds of cucumbers into garlic dills, I think we wound up with 40 quarts.

Whow! My tomatoes didnt do poop this year. Sitting with just a couple fruits on the vines refusing to ripen. I have about 8 plants, some cherry, some full size, same for them all. I am jealous. Cucumbers are doing just fair. Started one gallon jug fermenting with garic dills (I dont can them, just let them ferment like the old fashioned pickle barrel type). Potatoes are looking prolific this year, garlic a failure, eggplants and peppers have giant plants loaded with leaves but no fruits. What an odd garden year for me.

Plants can surprise you. So can bugs. When I used to do it, one year I planted Hubbard squash.

I had big beautiful plants and tons of squash, then one day the squash beetles arrived, like overnight, and ate all of it.

:sad:

Afraid the bugs got my cabbage this year (slugs). A thousand wild turkeys and they wont eat the slugs. Worthless creatures. At least I will have enough potato soup to feed an army. Fruit trees have done very well though. So has the horseradish, asparagus, lettuce, kholrobi, radishes, carrots and rhubarb. So not a total loss, just surprizes. Zuchinni not doing too well. Dehydrator wont get much of a woorkout this year. Maybe thats a good thing.... more time for reloading! :)

My tomatoes aren't turning yet. I probably have 100+ pounds, sitting there, green as gourds. I'm hoping they'll turn in the next week or two.
