you've been busy, @elsa!
may everyone's garden be blessed this year!

Today's tomatoes are now soup. I'm going to can this today.
We always have tons of pears. I make pear bread and can them to eat with ice cream. My neighbor makes preserves with them. One tree = many hundreds of pears!
@elisa Thanks - the greenhouse is a game changer! I'm so lucky to have it.
Now I want a hoop house for the community garden, where we also need a new fence. Price of steel is so high... At home, we finally got our new roof - yay!, and now we need some concrete work done on our front porch and back patio.
A few years ago I planted some bare root apple trees and maple trees, because we do intend to be here for a while. It will take some time before we have this place looking the way we want. I planted one nicer sugar maple that was given to me, and it's looking really good. And lilacs! Need more of those. Planting trees is always a good thing - even if you won't be around to see them fruit, hopefully someone else will! And they also invite wildlife which can be fun.
I've already got today's ripe tomatoes converting into sauce on the stove top. Eggplant Parmesan for dinner tonight!
Here's this morning's eggplant and tomatoes. I like this recipe. https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alexandra-guarnaschelli/eggplant-parmigiana-recipe-2012703
I would never use three onions in something like this buy she said it's her fave meal of all time - it's great!
