This time of year is so busy for us. We’re currently weaning calves, preparing pastures for winter pasture planting and preparing for a fall garden. But since I suffer with severe ragweed allergies that means RancherMan’s outside tending to the fences, pastures & cattle. I’m currently tucked inside preserving fresh fruit. I mean there’s so much fresh produce available! My aunt always shares massive quantities of amazing fresh apples from her tree. This year she shared TEN bushels with me! TEN!! Oh don’t worry, I shared some of the apples with family & friends and then I got to canning. I wanted to make sure none of those delicious apples went to waste.
I typically also can pears that a sweet neighbor shares with us this time of year. And all this fruit preservation happens at one time. Oh sometimes it’s really a comedy of errors too. I turn into Crazy Canning Lady!
