Here we are, the end of another growing season. I look so forward to this time of year, yet dread it at the same time.
We have been blessed with a bountious garden this year. Our neighbors are probably getting sick of cucumbers, sqaush and tomatoes.
Last week I cleared out the onions and picked lots of green beans, peppers, sqaush and tomatoes to share.
This weekend we tackled the tomatoes. We enlisted out kids to pick tomatoes and greenbeans. We set up outside to prep for spaghetti sauce. Next, I moved the show inside to prep for salsa.
The total work from yesterday amounted to 14 quarts of spaghetti sauce, 27 pints of salsa (HOT!!), 6 quarts of tomatoes and lots of dried tomatoes.
We have already put up beets, green beans, sqaush and jams - not to mention all the fresh produce we have consumed this summer. Yes, it's a lot of work. However, it is a labor of love.
Those that know Carp well know that he is a man of many breads. Carp made Bialys today for us to enjoy. They are scrumptious. They are kind of like a bagel with onions, poppy seeds and olive oil on them. Ahhhhhh, drool!
