Gravenstein harvest (and other harvests)

Caitlin McGrath | Aug 23, 200102:52 PM     3

I hope it's not hot in the East Bay, because my mom is canning. After returning a week or so ago from a trip to BC, she made her Sebastopol run. They bought from a farm with an honor stand--no attendant, you take the amount (already picked) you want and leave your payment in a box. Gravenstein fans must be honest folks [g]. So she's canning applesauce yesterday and today. She also said she harvested, from her own backyard, a treeful of plums--not sure what she's making with those--and a treeful of golden delicious apples. The latter, she's juicing into cider and freezing. The apples are really inedible, but make good cider. And the early June garlic crop is about done curing. I don't have space for a window box in my Manhattan apartment!

Just felt like sharing.

PS A cousin of mine just moved to SF for a semester at CCA, so I hope she'll find her way to some chowhound get-togethers.
