Look what I did tonight…

SALSA!!!

About 2/3 of this will get canned, the rest we’ll eat. It’s gooooood. Too bad you can’t taste it over the internet (heck, even smell it for that matter, it smells great too).

I’ve probably got about enough peppers in the fridge to can 2 or 3 pints tomorrow, plenty more still on the plants not quite ready to pick yet, and the plants are still blooming so we should still have more to come.

The tomato vines are starting to wilt so I doubt that we’ll get any more than what’s out there right now. There’s probably enough starting to turn red to get maybe three quarts canned by the end of the week, and plenty more green ones to harvest as they ripen in the next couple of weeks.

Should have more beans by the end of the week to eat and the few ears of corn out there are growing nicely.

I dug another hill of pototoes tonight and baked the two biggest for dinner. We had a leg of lamb roasted on the grill rotisserie, a beautiful, juicy, ripe sliced tomato from the garden and the baked potatoes for dinner. I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it.

You forget how much better truly fresh food is until you start growing your own again.
