September 2017 Reflections

Growing:  This month was an optimal month to start planting as the Houston temperature starts to cool.  Winter is fairly non-existent here, so plants can survive and thrive outside until Spring.  I’m really excited to see how this goes! We managed to plant or start…

  • 4 Strawberry plants
  • 4 Rhubarb pots from seeds (7 sprouts)
  • A whole planter of beet sprouts
  • 2 Tomato plants
  • 1 Fig tree
  • 1 Avocado tree
  • 2 Blueberry bushes
  • A whole bunch of Garlic

Canning:  Most of the preserving efforts came from one large haul at the grocery store.  This batch of produce….



And of course this was all inspired by the Rhubarb for my Strawberry Rhubarb jam.  I also managed to preserve 4 pints of pears from another grocery run.  Not a bad haul for one month!
