It took two days because we are old and fear dampness, but we cleaned out the corner of the basement in which we store jars, equipment and jarred stuff. This involved a huge amount of dry leaves and mud, which neither of us understands because the basement is indoors. We think. Pete bleached and mopped and we hope the rain outside will stop someday and the floor will dry out.
Ahead of us: clearing out jarred stuff from last year we didn’t finish over the winter. Most of it is fruit. I’m going to eat gallons of fruity yogurt.
