Gardening in June


Mulberry jam.
25 jars canned. In many little batches!
12 regular, 7 grape flavored, 3 strawberry flavored, 3 straw-mulberry.
I tried a new recipe using flavored gelatin to add taste and help set up. We are currently letting it "cure" while we use up the last few jars of last year's jam.



So many turnips, we pulled a big bucketful and canned the tops & roots.
The garage smelled rather potent as the pressure canner hissed, and the family isn't overly excited about turnips in the pantry...but we have a surplus! 16 quart of turnips and 6 pint of greens to be exact. I'll try to hide them in potatoes this winter.


Cilantro going to seed.
I still haven't used up my 3-year old seeds from the seed swap! Now we have plenty more tucked away in an envelope and hopefully it will also reseed and grow thus fall.
















A whopping 76 pounds of produce came out of our spring-planted garden!
(60 of which were turnips and greens) 
A few green beans, red beets, and carrots; the last of the snap peas and strawberries.
