I've been busy!!

It's been a couple weeks since I've posted anything.  I have been very busy working on preserving my garden produce.  The cucumbers and peppers have been producing in very great abundance. 

Here's what I've been doing --

August 23rd - started batch #1 of sweet chunk pickles which take about 3 weeks to finish - no picture

August 23 - 14 quarts of Kosher Dill pickles

August 24 - 14 pints of sweet pickle relish


August 25 - 12 quarts of tomato chunks

August 26 - 12 zucchini muffins and 1 loaf of zucchini bread - forgot to take a picture

August 27 - 10 pints of Bread and Butter pickles - also forgot to take a picture

I was not idle though!  I worked on getting more peppers cleaned and chopped for the freezer.  Those I will use up in the spaghetti sauce that will be starting next week - just waiting for the Roma tomatoes to ripen. And I spent a couple days getting caught up on laundry and some cleaning.
Earlier today I started a second batch of sweet chunk pickles.

About three weeks ago I did up stuffed green peppers and froze them along with a dozen empty pepper shells.

Thanks for stopping by!! Me thinks it's time for a nap ;D

Busy isn't the word for it! I love canning but have only ventured into salsa and jams. I am going to be canning some grape and strawberry jams in the very near future.
