Heat revisited

20 08 2009

We have been canning tomatoes like crazy. This action, in 100+ degree weather kind of makes everyone in the house a little nuts. But it must be done if we are to enjoy the bounty in coming months.

Also, blackberries have ripened to the point where they can be picked and jammed or frozen (since the stove is busy with the tomatoes, we have opted for the freezer route thus far). Sadie LOVES her some berries, so we must have plenty on hand for the winter.

It is weird to be thinking about the cold months in weather where it is so hot we are never comfortable indoors. (Never isn’t actually true. Between 3 and 6 am the house feels great.) But it must be done. Other than feed our CSA members, this is the whole purpose of the farm right now.

Although, we did just sell 100# of tomatoes to a local school. They will be freezing and canning them for the rest of the school year! Gotta love that thought!
