Fruit Time

I had a friend give me a pile of fruit today from his orchard.I've got plums,apples and pears.With the plums,I'm making plum preserves and plum jam.Pears,pear butter of course.I don't know what I'm gonna do with the apples.I'm about out of jars,yes the 120 jars I had are now full.I will probably just freeze the apples.I've got a 5 gallon bucket of plums sitting in my shed,fermenting,I will make some wine out of them.Beans and Toms are flowering again,hopefully I will get one last picking before frost,If not it's been a great season all the around..
