With the many dismal failures this year in the garden, I am assuming due to the early arriving and continual relentless heat, we are finally seeing some cooler weather for fall, with a few more withering days and wind mixed in.
I am very happy to see the Pomegranates seem to have fared well through it all. I have found the birds are a perfect indicator of when they are at peak ripeness. As soon as I see them picking holes in the skin to hollow them out, I know I need to get out there and harvest enough to make my annual batch of Pomegranate jelly. I also separate some of the biggest and reddest fruits to eat as is and share with a few neighbors and family.
This is my first haul after I have washed and cleaned them for eating and juicing. The prep for the jelly is time consuming and messy, but well worth it. I'll share more pics when I get that stage going.....
