So tomorrow I'm going to be making pickles!!! I picked a total of 6 cucumbers today and they'll need to be pickled tomorrow. Put 'em up! (an AWESOME preserving book) is going to help me along but it's going to be a HOT day in our kitchen with canning, etc, so it will get interesting!!!!
I also picked another Green Bell Pepper, some more Sweet Banana Peppers (which will need canned soon too!), MORE green beans, and some lavender flowers that I will dry and use in some cookie recipes!!
The garden needed a lot of grooming today - I had to tie back some of the tomato plants - I forgot how wide these grow - and I trained some more of the cucumber plants. The pumpkins are getting bigger! I'm hoping I have a bunch so I can carve some pumpkins this year - and roast the pumpkin seeds - yum!
I'll take a picture of my bushel basket and be sure to post it soon!! Wish me luck tomorrow!!! : )
