It’s the end of the month and time to see how we did.

Balance to date: $179.84

At trip to Wegmans to purchase a few items for Sweet Saturday: $16.11

Grand total: $195.95

I’d say not a bad amount. We were a little over last month and a little under this month. I can’t wait to see what kind of challenges next month brings.

This past month we used the bounty of the garden to put up some pears and tomatoes. You can read about the pears here. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing how easy it was to can the excess tomatoes from the garden.

It’s almost apple season. I enjoy apple picking directly from the orchard. We make it a family event and also try to bring a few friends who have never been apple picking. This year I’m thinking about canning cinnamon applesauce and maybe even some cinnamon apple slices. I’ll definitely be making apple pies, apple dumplings, and my homemade caramel apples for Halloween, and can’t wait to share these adventures with you.
