I'm really astounded I haven't managed to fill my pantry for the season, certainly not due to lack of trying. Its as if the cabinet is eating the jars.
I mean, what happened?? I bought Roma starts, which seemed simple enough, got cages to hold them up when they started getting heavy with tomatoes and it all went downhill from there. Seems I overlooked the part of the label that stated these were indeterminate tomatoes. They grew and grew, I pulled off 30lbs of tomatoes and they grew more and set more fruit. As full of tomatoes as they are and with the cooling of weather, I found new flowers this weekend. Chopped those right off so it would put its energy into ripening the fruit that was there instead of new stuff. The sticks, well, yeah. The cages gave up before I was able to pull the first harvest off these plants and by that point it was too late to change to something else, I'm currently plotting out how to do something more effective for next year because this, is ridiculous.
And the herbs are ready for winter. Picked up a few starts, a few others starting from seed. Once it cools I have a partially enclosed patio they can hang out on and hopefully not die over winter. Whats your favorite thing to can? I'm considering trying soup but really need to finish my tomatoes first.
