    I canned 27 pints of salsa today. By the end of the week I will be canning tomatoes. Have already canned green bean, and froze some too.

    I did more green beans this evening (after a full day teaching kdg). I am so sick of garden stuff right now! If DH picks anymore, I think I will scream! Once school begins, I truly do not have the energy to put up garden stuff. And to top it off, I skipped going to Zumba in order to take care of the beans this evening!

    Done half runner green beans, brussel sprouts, corn on the cob, tomatoes, pole beans, lima beans, and bush beans. Plus packing and moving. I don't have free time.

    I've been freezing green beans for several weeks now. I've got a few tomatoes to can tomorrow. I live in the upper peninsula of Michigan and we have short summers so I'm hoping to get more tomatoes to can before it gets too cold.

    Our tomatoes are still green and tiny little buggers. We have 7 little maters on the vines. I think we planted them too late. I would love to make salsa and put up tomatos again. But I don't think its happening this year. :)

    Getting ready to can salsa. What recipe did you use if you don't mind me asking. Also froze me some tomatoes. Does anyone else do this?

    I have a garden full of ripe tomatoes - but no energy to can them is growing there! Where do you think I can get some? :(

    Tomorrow is pear day. I have about a bushel to can. I wish I had tomatoes, but mine never bloomed and they are pretty expensive by the bushel.

    Try freezing some if you have room. And if you're unsure as to what will and what won't freeze, go to your biggest grocery store and look through their freezers. I'll bet you'll be surprised at what will freeze nicely.

    And during "The" war, I remember my Grandma canning peaches with one pit included and 5 or 6 whole cloves, because getting hold of sugar to add to it was nearly impossible at that time. She'd add sugar or honey to whatever she made from them during the winter.

    Wish I had something to can. It was too hot for anything to grow this year.

    I wish..the heat did our garden in...I have NOTHING to can...really had hoped to do up a 1/2 bushel of pickles this year..sigh...

    I don't can salsa any more..easier to freeze the tomatoes and make it fresh when we want it...

    oh, but I did buy the CO peaches and put some of those up

    now if only I could get a bushel of green beans and some cukes I would be set...sigh

    I've been up to my eye balls with canning and I have three flats of tomatoes on the kitchen table waiting for me today. These are being turned into veggie soup. I've made three batches of spaghetti sauce so far with hopes of a few more.
    Peaches come on Friday (4 bushels) I've froze and canned beans and I'm waiting for the corn. I think corn is the hardest but most loved by my family.

    We won't go hungry this winter. I'm living out Proverbs 6!
    Go to the ant,
    Consider her ways and be wise,
    She provides her supplies in the summer,
    And gathers her food in the harvest.

    It's nice to know canning is NOT dieing here in America.

    Blessings,
    Vicky

    I've never attempted to can anything other than jam. Usually strawberry, but this year I just made raspberry (freezer) jam. Mmm. Every summer we enjoy fresh salsa. I am interested in canning salsa. If anyone would care to share their recipe, I would appreciate it. :)

    I freeze tomatoes all summer long since we get so many from our garden, then I use them to make marinara sauce that both my daughter and I use to make spaghetti sauce.

    I did 28 jars of various jams, strawberry, cranberries from last year, raspberries too. Yes, last week, applesauce and pears. I have froze 15 dozen of corn on the cob.
    My apples are just about ripe so I'll have that and tomatoes to do.
    I may end up purchasing them.
    Enjoy
