Garden Gifts

Yesterday, I asked TJ to "pick every last apple off of the tree." Most were imperfect, many had holes and spoiled spots, and some were beyond usage for us.
However....we filled up two large crockpots with the salvageable apples and they made for us 7 quarts of perfectly good, unsweetened applesauce!

I also had a few willing helpers to pile the spoiled windfalls in a wheelbarrow and whisk them away to the compost.

Finally, we uncovered at least 6 zucchini that were playing hide-and-seek under the frost-covered plants. Also harvested were many butternut squash, now resting peacefully in our basement :)
