Harvest Monday 9 Aug 10

And coming in in last place in the Harvest Monday race is DaBeardedOne!!

Without pictures (or not many, anyway).

Have harvested CORN (3 ears, which Mom took home), many, many cucumbers, Green beans, an onion, Tomatoes, peppers (green, yellow, and JalapeƱo)and chard (Mom, again).

some of this weeks harvest

This was a busy day. Started by baking the loaf of 5 minute bread that the wife mixed up yesterday. While that was baking some of the cucumbers were canned as dill pickles. The 7 pints joined the 6 half pints of low sugar peach jam I made Saturday.

Had just finished the pickles when my parents showed up. They were on their way home after visiting with Moms brothers and sisters in La Grande, OR. Mom took 3 ears of corn, a few cucumbers, some tomatoes and chard.

More canning is on the agenda for tomorrow. Going to make some of Annie's Salsa to use up the tomatoes and peppers. I made some fresh salsa last week, which turned out pretty good until I added too much garlic.

Garden On.

Good job with all the produce and canning. Much of mine seems to find its way out the door with family, too.

Boy, you certainly have been busy with all of that canning! Nice :)

Nice to see I'm not the last one in for Harvest Monday for once! Canning on my agenda today as well, tomato sauce here, finally enough harvested at one time to make a crock pot's worth which is nice because I didn't want to heat up the house today with the small batch on the stove!

Nice harvest. Looks like the heat has kicked things into high hear.
