Wow, jam in the bread machine??? How cool is that?! I'll go check mine when I head down to the basement for the laundry.

Still have tomatoes here also. Lots of cherries, Big Boys & Supersonics left. They continue to ripen.

I'm about done with the rain. We ended up with almost 2 inches once all is said and done. Sun tomorrow and hi 60's should make the fall garden and everything else grow like crazy.

Heading to the basement...

Wow - a jam setting. Now that's super cool. Mine makes delicious bread, but that's about it.

No jam setting here either.

Ah ha...my new pressure cooker/canner can do it! rahrah

Still checking out all the hoops & covers for fall/winter gardening. I think when push comes to shove, as in first frost, I'll finally spring into action.

Tired now...nite nite, all.

NHGardener.....My plan for the lettuce and spinach to overwinter is NEXT year's plan which means early crops in 2014. This year I'm not able to get a hoop house built in time and prepped.

Next fall I'm sure you'll see my posts and pics of my trials and errors with summer sowing for fall-winter harvests and plus my separate overwintering program. The latter bed will do double duty as my overwintering bed and then after harvest, sowing my summer crops of 2014.

Ah, I see - so you're thinking of planting in the fall (of next year) and growing thru (or right after) the winter.

Have you ever read Helen & Scott Nearings' books? They homesteaded in VT and Maine back in the early to mid 1900s and lived on what they grew. I can't remember if they grew the entire year, but if not, it was close.

I, too, read the Nearing books years ago. I do not think they grew crops beyond fall. They lived on their canning and root storage crops thru the winter as I recall.
