This is the first year in a long time that we’ve had a decent garden. I probably picked the last of the squash yesterday. So many days with temps near 110 and the squash has burned up.
I picked the first Seminole Pumpkin yesterday. It could have stayed on the vine a little longer but I was ready to cook one and I’ll cook it today.
The tomatoes were stacking up. We aren’t picking bushels and bushels but even with us eating a lot of them, I had enough to make five pints of tomato sauce.
Earlier in the week, I made five half pints of peach/habanero pepper sauce. It’s HOT! I knew it would be hot but I wanted to try it.
We’re getting a lot of peppers. I’m freeze drying bell peppers and making pepper sauce with the hotter varieties.
Vince is out picking peaches now. I’m going to make peach/jalapeno jelly today. Yesterday I made peach cobbler and we had that with ice cream.
I was hoping our watermelons would get ripe while Addie is here. This heat isn’t helping their quality but they just aren’t ready to pick yet.
