If you’ve been gardening in the greenhouse this year, you’re likely to be overwhelmed with the bounty from your efforts. Fall harvest seems to sneak up on us all, and trying to store all those fruits and veggies for the fast-approaching winter months can be hectic! Here are a few fall canning tips to help you get your crops in quicker.
Canning your fall harvest from the greenhouse is one of the best parts of greenhouse gardening for many gardeners. Storing those fresh fruits and veggies signifies the culmination of a long and ‘fruitful’ growing season. The love of fresh produce is a strong motivating factor for many gardeners. It’s why we spend hours pulling weeds, watering, and caring for fledgling plants month after month.
Toiling over the ground; tilling until it is just right, mixing fertilizer until your hands are stained black and neat little rows are prepared, equal distances apart, to ensure the best end results, laying down the seeds with care, making sure they are properly spaced and judging the depth of each different variety by your well-trained measuring utensil, otherwise known as your pointer finger. Tending to the seedlings you watch them sprout and grow up into magnificent plants- Ah! The joys of gardening abound!
