Harvest & Replanting & A Recipe!

Carole shared her tomatoes. The Foster garden was much larger than mine so they had many more tomatoes, lots of cucumbers, tons of peas & too many ears of corn. DH & I & friends are the beneficiaries!

Raspberries have begun to ripen.

Peas, okra, peppers & a few tomatoes are still making.

I have canned over 4 dozen pints & a dozen quarts of my salsa, lots of tomatoes, thanks to Carole. We have quarts of lacto-fermented cucumber pickles in the refrigerator. Purple hull peas are in the freezer awaiting the holidays when the boys will be home. Okra we are enjoying when there is a mess to fry.

I have planted some veggies for autumn: broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkins, chard, turnips. It is tempting to pull the tomatoes so I can get spinach & lettuces started! Next year the summer garden will be larger & outside my fence. DH is taking ownership of the tomatoes, though I will be the one canning salsa.

How about a recipe? Sorry I haven’t published one lately.
