Putting Up Garden Produce

Today I was able to slow down, stay home, and put up garden produce...which was really nice. 💗

My husband picked everything yesterday.

I ended up putting up a gallon of banana peppers, three gallons of green peppers, and four quarts of tomatoes this morning.

My BFFF came over in the afternoon and rescued me with caffeine and chocolate. She also helped me snap green beans while we visited.

We were recently given a couple of bags of potatoes, so I decided to cut the potatoes up and add them to the beans. We ended up with a total of 14-quarts of green beans and potatoes.

I was also given some cucumbers at work last week, so I diced them up, added a couple of onions and a few other ingredients, and made a quart of cucumber salad. John and I had some of it with supper tonight and it was so good! 😋

It was wonderful getting to spend the day at home doing some of the things that I love most!

Until next time...

  1. Kudos to you and your hubby for saving your crop from the garden. I am never going to can anything. I just don't know how. I admire those that do. It is always so pretty to see. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Thanks, Susie! I didn't know how to can, either, when I started. I just grabbed a Ball Blue Book, gathered my supplies, and got started. It is a blessing to have home-canned produce on-hand. Come winter I call it "jarred sunshine"! And, yes, you're right! It's always so pretty! Blessings to you and yours, and thanks, again! :)
