My garden may not look like alot in pictures, but it did really well this year!!!
My cucumber patch……

A nice red tomato

The tomato jungle….

The produce just mainly from today…..

My canning today… 13 jars of plum/peach jam, 7 jars of peaches and I am have a batch of homemade special roasted garlic, fresh basil tomato sauce simmering on the stove that I am going to can.

My basil plant and two big pepper plants that I used the peppers in my salsa/taco sauce that I made like 11 jars last week.

Our little pet Snickers….the very patient bunny….

My picnic table…and some flowers…I used a clear protective coat on it…one of our projects I did this summer!! I am pretty pleased with myself.

Our front porch that we stained….

So, long day, still not done, I still have another box of peaches to do up, but it feels good to see all the jars downstairs already.

    Looks good, Martha!! You certainly are a very ambitious woman! πŸ™‚ Your garden looks nice – mine has been so slow in growing this year, all I’ve harvested in quantity (and still not enough to actually preserve) are lettuce, greens, sugar snaps, radishes, and beans.

    All thought of preserving anything else has been put on hold for a few days anyway – I’ve been processing 133 pounds of cherries. Now we’ve got about 3 gallons of dried cherries, a gallon of cherry-raspberry-huckleberry fruit leather, 3 1/2 gallons of frozen cherries, 6 pints of cherry jam, and 14 pints of cherry jelly…. Next I’ll be on to the apples falling out of my tree… πŸ™‚ It never ends does it — but I’m ever thankful for the bounty! πŸ™‚

    Hi Martha. Your tomatoes look delicious as does the fruit. I would love some of that basil for my sauce. You did a great job with the gardening. Thanks for sharing your photos.

    Wow! You’ve done a lot of canning in a day. πŸ™‚

    I canned 10 pints of apple butter today, and I have lots of tomatoes ready to go… project for this weekend. πŸ˜‰

    Your picnic table and front porch are really nice. πŸ™‚
