New Peaches

Peaches 1 Peaches 2Another canning endeavor this morning. We canned peaches from our miniature “Honey Babe” peach tree. We got seven pints. Could have eight but Sweetcheeks decided to favor me some peach cobbler instead. I certainly can’t complain about that.

Daily Harvest

062513 Harvest

This is what I harvested from the garden this morning in addition to 31 beets.  We are going to pickle them.  We’ll probably only get about 5 pints but they were the remnants from our beet crop this year.

The peaches are from a dwarf peach tree we have.  There were only 4 today but we have picked 42 season to date.  They are small but tasty.  They are very good with cereal.

So far this year, we have harvested about 153 lbs of fruit and veggies.  Last year, we hit 300 lbs.  I hope to have at least 350 lbs this year.  That is probably small potatoes (no pun intended) to those of you who have big gardens but for our small back yard garden, it’s pretty good.  Plus, we are only trying to feed the two of us.
