I do more than just can

Cleared the garden of the swiss chard. Decided to freeze what was picked. The pictures tell the story. First it was cleaned and blanched. Then it was allowed to dry before sealing into Foodsaver bags. It will be heavenly to have it during the winter months ahead.
Oh and I went apple picking. Or, I should say with my bad knee I went and bought what the orchard people picked. My sweetie's one request before I start canning the apples as sauce and pie filling was to make a Dutch Apple pie for him. It turned out so good. Especially as I had never made one.

Little old me...
