The pressure cooker/canning stuff arrived earlier this week, and as I type this Dad has his first try at Sun Pickles sitting outside. Uncle Frank was kind enough to deliver massive amounts of canning jars, and everything seems to be ripening almost all at once.
This year, I learned (from Dad) that keeping JUST the root of the onion covered grows some HUGE onions. These are going to be GIANTS!
I think I'd like to sleep in the dill tonight.
It smells SOOOOOOO good!
I think we'll have enough tomatoes to make
Juice, spaghetti sauce, marinara sauce, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, whole tomatoes, fresh & canned salsa & any other tomato product of our liking...
Our 2nd batch of peas (the 3rd batch is up and growing already!)
1st of 2 long rows of pickles.
2 rows of beans
