Finishing: Finishing

Last Sunday, a group of gleaners (summoned by Himself) came to take the extra fruit from the plum tree, so that this year the driveway won't be littered with fruit leather. Finished.

This Friday I picked every ready-to-eat bean, snap pea, tomato, strawberry, pepper, zucchini, pattypan squash, and cucumber in the farm. Well, every one that I could find--I'm sure that I missed a few, but I searched every plant, so hopefully none of them should be shutting down due to over-mature food. Finished.

I washed the strawberries and fed half of them to Himself and me (woohoo!), and froze the other half sliced with sugar. Finished.

I gave away all the zucchini and pattypan squash and some of the cucumbers. Finished.

The rest is in the fridge in nice little baggies and boxes. Not eaten or processed yet, but we have a plan. Just getting them promptly chilled and stored is a Finished.

After concluding that there's decent evidence that my recent lush hand-watering of the strawberry beds resulted in a fresh crop, I watered them again. Finished.

I finally ordered that bottle brush that I've been meaning to get forever, and cleaned that nice vacuum bottle that I've been meaning to clean, and used the bottle. A little thing, but finished.

I'll be Without Car for a little while, so I bought enough compost and irrigation supplies to get me through the next few weeks of farm prep. Not finished yet, but a nice clean clear step.

So. Finishing. It's a thing.
