Reaping the Veggies

Kim's done a great job with the veg garden this year. Here are just some of what he has gained from his efforts.




I gave him a hand and together we canned tomato sauce and tomatoes.




We also made some stewed tomatoes and "sun-dried" tomatoes for the freezer.


What are you reaping lately?

Update: This is the recipe I've used and loved for "sun-dried" tomatoes.

Kim congrats on the veggies. Come winter I can see you will be happy to have all that sauce.

Looks like I'm reaping the same veggies as you - made some salsa today to put in the freezer.

Those look great. How do you make your sun dried tomatoes? I really want to try that. Do you just then freeze them for later use?

What a great sauce and love that pan full of roasted 'maters. We have been eating our weight in peaches this summer.

Guys,

Great looking harvest! One thing we don't see here is harvesting carrots and tomatoes at the same time. That sauce bet it is tasty.

I dry my tomatoes on screens in the car on a hot sunny day. Sometimes it takes two days so I have been seen driving around town eating tomatoes.
The aroma is divine.

Quel superbe ^potager vous devez avoir et comme elles sont appétissantes, ces tomates! Ici, ce n'est pas une année à tomates: il a trop plu et la plupart de mes voisins ont dû arracher leurs tomates, malades.
Les miennes ne sont pas malades (un petit fil de cuivre dans le pied les a peut-être protégées!), mais elles sont peu nombreuses. Je reconnais les "noires de crimée" à la douceur incomparable !

That first photo of your bounty is fabulous. And you're going to love those lovingly preserved tomatoes this winter. Nice job!
