Harvest Time

 Since the deer ate all of the tomato plants from the front garden and the Douglas Fir tree roots have invaded the protected raised beds and made them un- gardenable hence no plantings, and because we were away while the Reliance grape ripened so that the birds got all of those sweet seedless grapes - this is the sum extent of our autumn harvest. Here we have a few Concord grapes and a small crop of apples from the earlier ripening apple tree that we call Tree No. 1.

I picked the fruit yesterday afternoon, and this morning I made grape jelly and apple sauce. Just 5 jars in all, but it will be enough for us to enjoy.
