Being in the south, I don't ever remember it being as cool as its been lately. I usually still have the AC on, but now its been off for over a week! Windows open at night and I even had the comforter for my bed out of the linen closet last night! WOW, autumn is coming in a little early, and full strength!!!
So it being so cool, it was time to plant. We've put out the broccoli, cabbage, carrots and some lettuce so far. I'm having a hard time finding my onion sets though. So that is a bummer. My tomatoes have to be done and moved out of the bed the onions are going to go into... so I am assuming I have a couple more weeks left to find those onion sets.
Funny, it seems like NO ONE sells fall seeds anymore?! I looked everywhere. Home depot and lowe's only had started Bonnie Bell items like Cabbage and Broccoli and southern greens. (Not cheap either, so not worth buying... I wanted seeds!)
Other then planting I am finishing up my harvesting so that means I'm finishing my canning. WHICH MEANS.... whatever is listed in my store for Jams and Jellies... that is pretty much IT! I am almost done canning for 2009. The only items I am working on you can expect me to add anytime soon are: Hot Pepper Jelly and Apple Preserves
So until my next post! Enjoy the cool season and longer nights....
