Spent much 0f yesterday picking tomatoes for canning because of the rain forecast for today. Right now it looks like there will be showers off and on all morning. Hopefully much of the afternoon will be dry. Cooler temperatures today means warming the kitchen will feel really nice! We have a good supply of canning tomatoes by the half bushel and a pretty good supply of Roma paste tomatoes.
Lots of apples to choose from for fresh eating (sweet or tart), and for cooking, sauce and pies. We have apples available by the 1/2 peck and 1/4 peck as well as 1/2 bushel quantities.
