From the Garden

Here is my trunk loaded with all the goodies from the garden at Marly's. We picked all these yesterday while mom was in surgery.

The grapes are just beautiful and the fragrance from them is amazing.

I came home with:

34 1/2 lbs of gorgeous ripe tomatoes

3 1/2 lbs of cherry tomatoes

19 lbs of grapes


I have never made grape jelly before and can't wait to see how it turns out.

I decided to make freezer salsa from the tomatoes. After reading all the info online about canning salsa I am not sure I want to go for that yet. You have to have the acid content just right to prevent spoiling, that's something I didn't know. I am new to canning and try to follow all the rules. Also Wally's was out of canning jars so I had to go to King Soopers for them and paid $3/box more than wally's. That sucks, but maybe next year I will plan ahead and get them when they are abundunt. Right...

Tomorrow: The Great Grape Massacre!
