Those apples were harvested; enough for us to process several pounds for apple pie filling and to gift to neighbours too. Dual purpose: edible and cookable.
And the tomatoes! Who knew you could get so many tomatoes from so few plants!? Right now they’re coming in thick and fast; I’m making stove top tomato sauce for as many meals as I can, and freezing as many tomatoes for one a long cookfest when they’re all in. Tomato sauce! Yes!
Gardens; they give so much. Sanity in growing season, and tomatoes for winter. What a win win situation.
