It seemed fitting to cook the last fresh harvest of 2017 on the day of my first harvest of 2018—a cycle completing itself.
This little apple tree has my heart, hidden away on Light street behind a brick wall and some brambles. I’m not sure what kind of apple tree lives there, but I do know they make good cider, applesauce, and we’ve eaten a fair share out of hand.
In winter, I love making a little bit of marmalade for some bright color, flavor, and Vitamin C!
Now that the new year has officially come, it’s time to reflect on the last garden season’s successes and plan for next year’s veggies.
