Friday night we left work at about 4:30 (shame on us we left early) because we knew that we had a lot of vegetables to pick in the garden. We were finally done picking everything just a little before 7 p.m. – and look at the haul we got! Hobo was checking out the green beans….
Saturday was a busy day – errands in the morning and Salsa in the afternoon. 25 jars of 2 different kinds of salsa – a Raspberry Tomato Salsa and a Black Bean & Corn Salsa (recipes coming).
Sunday involved dealing with the peppers – which we sliced into strips and froze in small packages – enough for a pizza or a stir fry – or about 18 total packages —– love my Seal A Meal!
And then of course there were the tomatoes, which resulted in 11 quarts of tomato juice!
I’m already at nearly 100 jars of canned goods (actually it may be a little more) – I’m not yet ready to make the final count, truthfully I’m afraid!
We’ve had so many veggies this year that I can’t keep up! I’ve taken stuff to my Uncle, given a couple of 5 gallon buckets of cucumbers to my neighbor across the street. Given a plastic grocery bag, chock full of cucumbers to the local nursing home, and have eaten cucumbers at least twice a day (every day) since early July!
