Salsa

We canned our first salsa from our homegrown tomatoes.

I do not like salsa but Jack loves it and he likes it hot so this has plenty of jalapenos in it from the garden.

We made 3 pints total 2 in pint jars and 2 in 1/2 pint jars.

I know my grandmother would be so proud of me. Every year she canned figs preserves, Jelly, tomato relish, pears, lots of her famous sweet pickles, peppers, and much more.

They say when your garden produces an abundance of vegetables your life is in perfect balance.

The tomato crop is producing

Jack has over 100 tomato plants planted most were suckers he pulled off other plants that he rooted in the greenhouse.

The plants are for the most part spaced out so that all the tomatoes production is not at the same time. The first batch was planted then 3 weeks later the next and 3-4 weeks later the last ones. We should have good tomatoes for awhile.

We are planning on grilling some to put in the freezer for sauce since I love to make homemade sauce. I try and keep at least 2 gallons made up so I can just take it out and then it’s ready to go for whatever Italian food I am cooking.

We will also be canning some salsa since he has plenty of jalapenos to go in it.

These tomatoes are from the last 6 days. Talk about good there are no vine-ripe grocery tomatoes that can touch the flavor of fresh tomatoes. They make your taste buds go wild they are so good. The yellow ones are called Lemon Boy some of the red ones are Better Boy and some are Celebrity. Then we have the small sweet 100s. Our other types are not producing yet.

We have picked about 60 tomatoes so far.

My dad would love to see this garden and he would love getting some of these good tomatoes and vegetables.

The satisfaction of accomplishment one gets from growing vegetables in a garden is immeasurable.
