Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
with an old Gravely walk-behind - in Texas. Of course, there was no Summer garden there.

Haven't seen a Tomato Worm in many a year. Out here we have Blossom End-rot, but the Romas seem to resist that very well.

Pear preserves sound good to me.

Tomatoes, beans, and fruit for the whole year (frozen), but we buy bananas, of course. (I'm planting Kiwi vines this Winter.) Lettuce generally grows for about 8 months. We get potatoes for about 4 months, and we store them - plus winter squash - for about 3 months additional. Everything else, we can generally count on 3 - 6 months, depending on species and dependent on our strategy of using small amounts in combinations, rather than one, big quantity of a particular item.
