Fruits of our Labor

This year our garden has been very plentiful, unlike last year. We have had plenty of squash, zucchini, cucumbers, green and red peppers but most of all tomatoes. We have had tomatoes by the bushel. Last year we had a handful here and there, so it has been very exciting to have so many this year. My kids have loved the garden as well. Dawson loves the zucchini, squash, and tomatoes, Addy not so much. However she will eat the chocolate chip zucchini cookies but that is it. Due to all the tomatoes I have finally been able to can me some salsa! I love homemade salsa, but then again who doesn't!

This is just what we picked out of the garden in 1 day! Crazy

This is what I have in my fridge....... I think I am ready!

Here is the fruits of our labor. Yummy!
Plus we pickled our cucumbers, something I have never done before. Thanx to Grandma Morris who came and helped me. We did it in no time at all. Not only was it faster but we had a great time together!.

I canned salsa the other day too! Looks like you have a green thumb. And I'm so impressed that you pickled cucumbers! Isn't it so much fun to see what pops up each day? I Love it!

Canning pickles scares me? I'm fine with tomatoes and peaches, but that is about it for my comfort in canning! :o)
I also second the statement you do have a green thumb! Very impressive!

Those tomatoes look sooooo yummy! I love garden tomatoes. Way to go on the canning; something I honestly never want to do or learn to do, but I should.

Yay... looks like it all went well:) Congrats! It's a pain, but makes you feel quite domestic, doesn't it? Hopefully it turned out yummy with the lime juice. Someday I would love to attempt pickles!
