Mondays around here always feature “what I am working on”. I try to always have something quilt related and I always have something but this week was a bit more of a struggle for me. I’ve been busy.
Canning salsa….28 quarts worth.
The last batch was in the canner when I snapped the picture. Even after all the blossom rot I had, I’ve still managed to get a few tomatoes. It has helped as we have been getting a small amount of rain here and there and the temps have been comfortable.
We dug the onions and they are all cleaned and drying. The rack on the bottom left is filled with purple onions.
The crock is full of sauerkraut and fermenting. Hopefully there will be 7 gallons or so.
Some friends who make sauerkraut all the time came over and gave us a little live in person tutorial on how to. Of course I was so busy listening and cleaning cabbage that I forgot to snap pictures. All I can say is I am excited to try this. Everyone raves about their kraut so here’s to hoping for some good kraut this time around.
All that’s left in the garden is a zucchini plant, tomatoes, peppers, a few cabbages to eat fresh, along with pumpkins and squash that are almost done…oh a couple beets too. I need to get some lettuce planted yet to take us into fall but that’s about it. I can honestly say I am so happy that it’s winding down. Hopefully then I will back to more sewing!!
