I'm getting a handful of okra each day, and when I have enough for a canning, I'll have those pickled okra on my shelf as well. This year was our first try at okra. To my surprise, it's gorgeous!
|Isn't Okra a cool vegetable? Look how it grows! Always clean.|
The jalepeno peppers (which I use in my Rotel recipe) are being so productive, they are weighing my plants down! I'm very happy with this crop too!
Now, my tomatoes are my prize crop! I have nearly 25 plants in the garden. The majority of them are Roma, as I can lots of spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, salsa and "rotel" tomatoes. My plants are completely covered with tomatoes, but they're still all green. I hope that they ripen while I'm on vacation, because this crop takes most of my time to store. Take a gander at these puppies! They're so nice this year.
So, in the meantime........while I wait for my favorite crop to ripen, the cucumbers have my attention. Yesterday, I picked about 25 cucumbers and canned the pickles. I used the Mrs. Wages, polish dill pickles envelope from the local grocer. They turned out nice. What do you think?
I hope your garden is blessing you with a lot of good, wholesome food for your family. I'll share the "rotel" recipe if any of you are interested. Just leave me a comment!
