Two years ago, we had a bumper crop of tomatoes in our garden and canned a huge amount of salsa.
Last year, we didn’t plant any tomatoes and instead attempted to grow cucumbers as we needed to replenish our pickle supply. Unfortunately, we didn’t bargain for the volunteer pumpkins taking over the garden and choking out the cukes.
This year, we pulled up all the volunteer pumpkins and had a great cucumber crop. We are also experiencing a wonderful tomato crop. Thus, it is time to make some more tomato-based canned goods. As you can tell from the picture, we were able to make quite a few pint jars of salsa several weeks back. We have another load of tomatoes in the fridge, and tonight we hope to finish up the salsa-making for this year.
