Picking  
Picked about ten lbs of apricots with my brother. And that's just the few that are ripe. We'll be knee deep in apricots by the end of the month. Five trees=GAH!

I wish I liked apricots; I'd offer to take some off your hands. And how are your tomatoes doing?

They seem to be doing fine. So does the cabbage, broccoli, beans, corn and potatoes. My chili peppers seem unhappy though.

Looks like we're going to have a bumper crop of pomegranates this year too.

I recommend making batches of apricot jam. Great for cooking with and a lovely thing to give out as presents come winter holidays.

Of course you could always dry some too...

Oh, yeah, our canning room is full of jam and liqueurs, and we have screens ready for drying. Going to make apricot salsa too. We have 14 fruit and nut trees on the property, so lots of work ahead.

So you're already experienced in both the labor and the reward.

Apricot salsa hmm? What goes in it besides the apricots?

Onions, peppers, cilantro, lime. The apricots fill in for the tomatoes for the most part.

Oh, you're making me hungry!
Ithithildyn on June 7th, 2009 12:47 am (UTC)
We won't starve this winter, that's for sure.

Oh, damn! I wish I live closer to you. I'd offer myself to take those evil apricots off from your hands *laughs*
