Yesterday was a busy day. I was up at dawn and out in the garden shortly after 6am. I started off by picking beans and cucumbers before I spend half an hour just watering the garden. The drought that we have is severe and without watering the garden at least every second day, I would not harvest anything this year. The plan was to can the beans and preserve the cucumbers. Speaking to my neighbor she offered me a bucket full of August Apples, so after I prepared the beans and put them in the caner and went over to my neighbors to get apples. Now, as far as I am concerned August apples are the best and make for wonderful apple sauce. So I spend the rest of the morning peeling and cutting apples and making apples sauce. One bag of apples (approx 800g) was just cut and frozen for apple pie or smoothies but the rest was all used for apple sauce, and let me tell you it was delicious.
