I can relish but haven't done it for a few years. Was going to do it last year but my cucumber plants died. The plants look real good right now so I just might be able to do the relish this year. All this rain sure has helped the plants. It's a great recipe and everyone loves it. I put up tomatoes but not going to do that anymore; too much mess and trouble. Besides that I only planted one tomato plant plus a grape tomato.

What is your recipe for the relish if you don't mind sharing? Good luck with your plants this year.

Thanks

Trying to paste it in here but perhaps it's too long. I'll keep trying to paste but if it won't work I'll send it to you by direct message. As a matter of fact I have two recipes; one Hot & Sweet Relish and one Cucumber Relish. I like sharing recipes.

My garden is in Delaware and we have had lots of rain and the garden is doing great. I have tiny green tomatoes developing and lots of blooms on the cucumbers and peppers.

Indiana here ours had to be replanted with green beans this year. We have had a lot of rain so planting didn't happen until a month after we usually plant too. Just keep yours weeded something will grow in it. Some years you get plenty, others not so much but it is still basically free food and better than store bought eh?

I have no idea because this is my first garden, lol. I do have some small flowers on my pepper plants and my tomato plants are growing like weeds but no blooms/buds yet. How long does that normally take from the time they are planted? I planted the tomatoes 2 1/2 weeks ago.

Okay, question.. I don't want to start a new thread since there is already one about canning!!

Is it possible to buy store bought honey, then can them in smaller canning jars (so they are sealed shut)??? If so, how exactly do I do that? Any good websites for me to look at? Thanks!!

Yes put them in your half pint jars or pint jars process like you would for pints about 10 minutes in a water bath canner. That is enough time to seal them and since it was bought already processed you don't need to reprocess the honey.

YLisa on the back of your plant tag or back of your seed packets it will tell you how long each plant takes to grow. Sorry I don't know exactly how long before I get blooms on my maters.
