If nothing else, this fall we will have tomatoes and peppers galore!!! That is about all the plants we can buy this time of year! I do have a cucumber, a zucchini and an okra. We have about 5 different kinds of hot peppers. Anyone have good salsa recipes?? I did have tomatoes about ripe on the tomato plant in the pot. Russ found them laying in the yard half eaten. I don't know if it was a critter or a little white pup!
Russ is getting the wood to build a couple more boxes today. We want about 6 or 7 by spring. We are really going to plant. Here by mid March we need to start planting. I guess I may have to break down and get a couple caner's. I have been using an old water bath canner of Trice's. They say now you need a pressure canner too. I am a little scared of pressure cookers. I saw my Mom's explode once.
She went on to use it all the time and my Mother in law had one so I guess I'll bite the bullet!! I saw some fancy ones on line. They are a little to expensive for me. I'll go to Wally World!
My new favorite snack is little cucumber sandwiches. (Thanks Penny). I have been making them on little 9 grain pieces of bread with garlic and chive cream cheese. Add a slice of cucumber and it is sooo good. Even Russ like them and he isn't crazy about cucumbers.
The best part of the garden is I am getting up and going outside first thing in the morning. It sure breaks the habit of grabbing some weird thing for breakfast and sitting here on the computer half the morning!
The dryer is buzzing. Bye
