My cooking/gardening day began in the kitchen. I found another 10 jars of pear sauce to turn into pear butter since we eat the one, but not the other. So I filled the slow cooker with the sauce and will cook it down to a bit less than 1/2 what it is now. Then I went out to the hoop house. The weeds have started growing again with this warmer weather as well as the plants. So I spent time removing them and picking produce, I pulled the rest of the Brussels sprouts which were starting to flower. I picked then pulled out half of the winter broccoli which is basically done. The winter cabbage is still there along with half the broccoli plants.
