Beuatiful harvest I am impressed. Wish I had that much variety.jal_ut wrote:Nothing like a home grown vine ripened tomato. My mouth is watering. If I am really lucky, I will get some in a month. Starting to be loads of green ones.
We have had so many this year already I have canned sauce, tomatoes soup, pizza sauce, I am getting ready to make a big batch of Ketchup to can. I know we have given away 2 bushels already. My favorite time of the garden is when we have put up all we need and I start giving stuff away.jal_ut wrote:Nothing like a home grown vine ripened tomato. My mouth is watering.

The reds I just call "Red". The others are Big Daddy. Some of those larger ones went over 1.5 pounds each. I grow some Yellow Spanish onions too, but none of that variety are in the photo.What varieties of onions do you have there, jal?
I grow much more than we need. We do can some in mason jars and freeze some. When my family was living at home we used to can about 800 jars a year and fill two freezers. Also dry some items. Don't need that much now with just two of us. I give lots away to friends and family and the food pantry. Yes, I do sell some too. Then I feed the worms, bugs and critters.What do you do with all those veggies? Do you preserve any (and how?) Do you sell?
