200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

Here's the last two of the zucchini, paired with some canteloupe and lots and lots of tomatoes. I planted 2 types of canteloupe, one from seed and one from the store. The seed ones haven't ripened yet and the store ones aren't very sweet. Hm. Not auspicious for me to plant them again. If it were last year, I'll bet none of these would have ripened at all (or the tomatoes either).
The cherry tomatoes are sungold from seed. I will definitely plant those again - they're wonderful! The larger tomatoes are brandywine from seed, and early girl and better boy from the store. I'm not impressed with the taste of any of them compared to the taste of the cherry tomatoes. I think next year I'll do the sungold again, and some different full-sized tomatoes.
I've been drying and freezing, but it's becoming apparent that I need to learn how to can, so I can save some of these tomatoes. The source of all wisdom (the internet) leads me to believe that it isn't difficult. This weekend's project perhaps?
