I have had an abundance of tomatoes and decided I would try to make salsa. The first batch turned out pretty good, but I didn't can it . So I have since made more and canned it. It is a huge project for small reward. Single recipe makes 2 1/2 pints, so I doubled it and got 4 1/2 pints. And today I timed myself and it took 3 hours from beginning with preparing the tomatoes to the end when I was taking them out of canner process.
We are still getting green beans , but no as many, and the carrots are very tender and good, I think a carrot cake is in the future. My corn is done, I was disappointed with it , but I should have picked it sooner, so next year I will make the calendar so that I will start checking closely to pick. I think I will also plant more green Bell peppers and will plant Jalapeño peppers also so I don't have to try and find then in the store. All in all the garden was fun and kept me busy this summer. And I have to laugh to think I am already thinking about how to make it better for next year.
Like getting more large tomato cages or maybe we should make something instead to hold the plants up? Just something to think about over the long cold winter !
