The fruits (and vegetables) of last year’s gardening and canning labors:
From left to right on each shelf, starting with top shelf:
- Green beans, catsup
- Relish, pear preserves, more green beans
- Tomatoes w/fennel, onion, and garlic, straight up tomatoes
- Pickled beets, pickled onions, pears, more green beans
We grew everything pictured, except for the pears, which came from Matthew’s grandparents’ neighbors’ tree. Matthew’s mom did most of the preserving and canning last summer and fall, since we were a little bit busy with this. We contributed the green beans, lest you think we were total slackers.
