Reaping what we've sown...


The garden has started producing! DH had to pick some squash today. I got 4 pints of squash pickles made. Didn't have enough spices for a double batch, so will have to wait till they get more celery seed.

We put some fresh cucumbers in a salad last night, along with some of our radishes.

Won't be long (a day or 2) before we have to pick and break green beans and get them canned. I think later today, DH is gonna pick some green tomatoes for me to can. If not today, then tomorrow or Friday.

[sign in to see URL] you are canning tomatoes or peaches or berries or things like [sign in to see URL] can be quick frozen for quite a while until you either get enough or get TIME to can them.
As those sorts of things sort of 'mush' up anyways... emoticon

[sign in to see URL] that has any liquid to it tends to get really mushy if it's frozen.

I plan on using my tomato juice recipe for the juice as well as for the spahghetti sauce. It has a really good flavor and I think by spices and seasonings to it, as well as some tomato paste, it will be really [sign in to see URL] something I have to try.

We don't get any berries or [sign in to see URL] least not here. I'd have to go buy some, which I'm not totally opposed to lol
