ok, ok; well I didn't but that's ok, I will have a few more tomatoes in a few days and some cukes. of course I still have a lot of herbs, and jalapenos, but not much else.

We all seem to think fresh tomatoes are better than what we get in the store: we are all correct about that. I made tomato pie for dinner last night. I didn't have quite enough tomatoes from the garden so I decided to us one I had gotten a couple days ago from our local independent grocery store. I did a taste test for the first time and had hubby do the same: OMG, there is no comparison between what comes from the garden. I think this is the first time I have actually put one up against another.

Picked over 2 pounds of beans. The new archway I built is working pretty good.

Today I blanched and vacuum sealed 10 one gallon bags of snow peas, 5 one gallon bags of Kentucky Wonder Beans, 10 one gallon bags of sliced squash. All in the freezer. I will have enough garden vegetables to last this winter.

I've been picking vegetables from the garden every day. This is great!

well I did pick a couple of cukes today and have lots of tomato blossoms. They better form fruit in the next few days or they will go like most have this year: either too hot or too wet. Right now it is just right, but by the weekend it is suposed to be close to 100 degrees. The rest of the garden looks like it will have to die away and we will have a better day, next year.
