Green house progress …
in the garden …
These tomatoes look more normal. I just wish that I would have known not to give them so much water so they would ripen up better. I'm still working on that green thumb ;) Its a good thing my husband is the real gardener! If all else failed I see lots of fried green tomatoes and green tomato salsa in our future.
In the kitchen …
The pickling adventure…. to make a long story short there should have been twice this many jars but the produce never made it that far. Live and learn! Love'n those Tattler lids though! I even read they improved them so there is no loose fit during processing and then tightening needed after processing. They work just like metal lids now. Guess I bought mine a little too soon!
Our feline friends …
