Although the garden has been struggling due to this summer's heat and lack of rain it keeps producing and I keep harvesting. After a picnic on Monday I made another harvest to bring home and upon washing and going to put everything away I quickly realized we were not eating up our produce fast enough - as I found some bad tomatoes and eggplant in the fridge. :(
So rather than let the remainder of what we had gathered go bad I began chopping and freezing! Although I enjoyed canning tomatoes the other week - the process was long and I didn't have enough tomatoes to work with this time around so into the freezer they went - yellow pear and cherry tomatoes!
I blanched and froze the rest of the lima beans and also managed to deseed and chop up about 50 jalapeno peppers. I remembered to wear gloves this time so my fingers stayed in tact!
There is still more veggies to be dealt with, but tonight is food shopping night so we'll see what kind of time I have left after I get home and get everything put away...it may have to get pushed off till tomorrow.
