What are You Making From Your Garden?
Here’s hoping more of you will share here. I love peeking through internet windows into other people’s gardens…it’s easier if you tell me where to look.

Anyway, this month has been the busiest garden month & it’s the one where the garden spills into the kitchen, nearly everyday. It’s exciting, overwhelming, messy, delicious, exhausting and worthwhile. So far we’ve made 2 kinds of sauces, one from a recipe Drew found, the other from my own head. (I prefer the second method and its results!) Drew made a killer Salsa, we’ve also canned some beans and cabbage, frozen some things and enjoyed fresh tomato salads, sandwiches, and more.

we’re now keeping canned goods above our cabinets as no other shelf is sturdy enough…hopefully they are!

How do you use the produce from your garden or farmer’s market? Do you put stuff up? There’s nothing more satisfying than fresh tomato sauce, straight from our own garden, in February. If you have a recipe for something you love, let me know, we have a hard time re-using–even the ones we have loved.

Please share links to recipes in the comments, or to your own blog posts with this widget:

    I wish I had garden stuff to share! Our garden was kinda a flop this year, especially considering the size and the fact that 3 different adults were working on it. I just haven't been able to get out there and even take a peek in awhile, but I think most stuff hasn't really survived the heat. We did plant in our pumpkin and indian corn patch, so hopefully in a few months I'll have something fun to report. 🙂

    the heat and dryness is getting us too. if we weren't at home with it everyday I imagine we'd lose track of things too. Having had a garden somewhere else, I know how difficult that can be to keep up! Things get out of control QUICK!

    It is still early for us to be canning much up north here. I have done some posts on the canning I do on my blog. I've been too busy this year to do much!
