Canning up the garden's bounty...

The Bear (my hubs) and I did up 16 quarts of pickled beets yesterday. We can outside on the patio , with a propane tank/turkey fryer setup....It is just so nice not to have all of that hot steam in the kitchen.  He is a huge help to the process....and I think he really enjoys it.  We lost one jar.  he got a litlle antsy and decide to add some more water to the pot.....before he took out the jars....he was mad at himself...said he should have known better......oh well , i say......if you only lose's all good!  Our garden has been a bit of a disappointment this year......the heirloom tomatoes.....didn't grow at all.....i think we have 3 tomatoes total....and they are green, green , green......

I have picked some of the romas.....been drying them like crazy ....along with hot peppers, green peppers, and herbs......I found a recipe to put the tomatoes in oil safely and one recipe to make an essence of them....for bruschetta type of spread....i am going to try that.

we also harvested  yukon gold potatoes, and cranberry red potatoes....we really love the cranberry reds, they are just like eating candy....

well i have a class today for not sure how much gardening or sewing done for that matter. so signing off  for now.....have a great week!
