Now that the garden is cranking out the veggies we have more than we can possibly eat. Not enough to set up a stand on the corner of the highway, but definitely more than a family of four can use in a couple days. Luci has been busy in the kitchen putting everything in jars. So far the stock of pickles is filling up with bread and butter pickles, green tomato dills, whole garlic dills, dill hamburger slices and pickled peppers there is salsa, tomato sauce and blackberry jelly and strawberry jam. We also picked plums and squeezed out a gallon or so of bright hot pink plum juice that's in freezer until were ready. These pickles got put up tonight and in the morning we sauce the tomatoes and use half for salsa half for pasta sauce.
