Three blemish free boxes have been wrapped and stored in the cool of the basement for later use. The rest have been divided: un-pecked and slightly pecked (by the birds). At least one more batch of applesauce .. and I'll call it a day. The peels are fermenting in a crock and will hopefully turn into raw apple cider vinegar.
The gardens are still hanging on. Onions, garlic and tomatoes pulled. Still need to harvest carrots, potatoes, summer squash, celery root, pumpkins, cabbage and our second round of raspberries from the ever bearing plants. Strawberries have rebounded and provide enough for a yogurt topping every few days. I've only watered the garden once in the past several weeks. The plants are hanging on with early morning dew and deep roots.
I'm so enjoying the late warmth of summer! What's being 'put up' from your summer garden?
