I ended up having to take a week off to take my sister down to Florida for school since my dad was sick. Because of this, the garden got a little out of hand. But it is still producing like nobody’s business! Since it hadn’t been looked at in a week we had a lot of things that were rotten or too big. However, this was from one picking and this doesn’t even include everything that was ready! I went and picked more the next day! We had a ton of tomatoes and green beans. Even a few peppers and cucumbers! The melons are still doing really well and I am getting anxious for them to be ready!
While I drove back from Florida, we decided to drive through the Carolina’s instead of Georgia. Right at the edge of the border of South Carolina we stopped and picked up lots and lots of peaches to take home. So not only do we have more tomatoes than we can eat but we have more peaches than we can eat too! So my grandma and I got started on our canning process. So far we have made 8 pints of salsa, 4 pints of tomato juice, 2 quarts and 6 pints of canned peaches and 4 quarts of frozen peaches! AHH! But we had so much fun.
We came out with beautiful, yummy peaches ready to freeze and canned! We had a lot of fun and preserved a lot of delicious fresh produce. Now we can enjoy them for months to come!
