      1. Zucchini are a trial in the end. I once had a friend that planted maybe 5 hills because she thought she needed to in order for them to pollinate…I think they could have made a woodpile out of zucchini. We never plant them because we favor winter squash, and I just take a few off the neighbor’s hands….they see it as a gift!😆

  1. I’ve been freezing strawberries & raspberries as they come . . . have already had one canning session (whole tomatos and some french beans) . . . and today husband is cooking up tomatos to make sauce, so I need to get sterilising equipment out again.

  2. I’ve got a big sterilising pot, and use glass jars with rubber seals. After 2 hours in the sterilising pot, any air left in jars has been pushed out so they’re pressure sealed.
