There were several speakers, including Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack. Well done, guys!
OK, now on to the homestead. Several types of fruit were frozen at the end of last season, and knowing I needed to make room for the coming season spurred me on to canning them this week. I made an elderberry/blackberry jam, an elderberry/blueberry jam, and a passionfruit/lemon/vanilla curd that made the house smell heavenly.
Joseph & I planted seeds this week of suyo long & national pickling cucumber, tromboncino squash, early golden crookneck squash, and Georgia candy roaster squash. Corn was also planted, though I'm not sure which variety. Something chewed off one of our tomato plants... grrr. I'm off to begin listing some of my glass garden flowers in the shop. Figuring out shipping is going to be the toughest thing, as they will all be different due to varying weights and sizes. Wish me luck!
