    I'm dehydrating Asian pears and some apples today. First dehydrator is already going. I have to get out and get the spoiled pears and black walnuts off the ground. I wish I had a GIANT food processor to drop that stuff in to chop it up. Then I'd just throw it in the garden area and let it fertilize other stuff.

    They happily would, but I had a good patch of volunteer mustard come up and I don't want them to eat it.

    Picked a bunch of grapes from my great aunt's vineyard. Just concords so I can make grape jelly. They have a couple acres of grapes and many different varieties of juice, table, and wine grapes.

    Mom wanted to know how grapes did in the food mill so we ran a bunch through. Green juicing I can get behind.

    Mom froze the bags of juice so she can make some jam later.

    We also ran a bunch of her grapette tomatoes through the food mill. That was the whole reason I brought the thing down. Had to see how well it could process them. Mom wants one now. It turned those tiny tomatoes into a seedless, skinless, soup base.

    My granddaughter arrived today, and she loves pickles. And we were looking at the volunteer cucumber plants. IMG_20170924_202706.jpg So I am pickling one cucumber for a special 4 year old :) IMG_20170924_203302.jpg

    After putting in all new stepper motors and LEDs in the dash of the veggie hauler (3 1/2 hour job) you don't fix these newer pickups with a wrench anymore, you fix them with a soldering iron :(. I picked some veggies to put in the back of the veggie hauler.
