Garden Update. . .
We have cucumbers!!!!!!! I'll have to start a crock of sweet pickles this week! We also have a boat load of squash, what do you do to preserve squash?.?.? I dug the row of potatoes yesterday morning, got quite a few. Now I just have to figure out how to store them so they don't rot. J started tilling the garden this morning. . . Why can't the pretty grass grow in the yard and not in the garden? *tangent* And we've had an infestation of snakes in the garden. We've killed 2 and J let one get a way in the last few days. UGH. I *really* *HATE* snakes! *tangent ends* I'm sure there is a load of green beans that needs picked tomorrow and they sure need weeded too. Maybe I'll try canning some green beans and new potatoes? I've never tried that but maybe I will. . . Tomatoes are starting to set on! I've been making a lot of salsa so I'm running low on tomato juice, that will be a blessing to be able to can a bunch of it this year! Oh, J also picked a couple peppers this morning, Big Jim I think. They smell great! I love using fresh peppers instead of frozen ones!
