This photo represents but a tiny portion of the harvest from our "Super Garden." I am not going to lie. I am completely overwhelmed. No one in their right mind would plan to do this kind of garden along with renovating a basement and moving in their family. Of course, none of us knew we would be so busy when the garden was planned! :)
I am not a country girl by birth. I am growing into this role. I have no idea what I am doing. What I don't know I attempt to learn via the internet or other experienced country people. Canning is hard work. Doctor's Wife, Pretty Princess, Lou Lou and I learned that last year.
So far I have "put up" the following...
Potatoes in the root cellar
Onions in the root cellar
Garlic in the root cellar
Green Onions in the freezer
Carrots in the freezer
Snap Peas in the freezer
Zucchini in the freezer
9 pints of salsa
38 pints of bread and butter pickles
6 quarts of bread and butter pickles
12 pints of dill pickles
12 pints of sweet relish
I'm looking forward to canning more salsa and some pasta sauce with our tasty tomatoes. I wish I knew what else to do with all those stinkin' cucumbers. By the way, when a cucumber is bitter...you can tell. It is NASTY! DW and the kiddos came today to help me can salsa and pickles. I made DW taste the cucumbers. She was a good sport.
