What did you do in the garden today?

@Wee Farmer Sarah would you mind sharing your recipe for the green tomato salsa verde (or enchilada sauce, I forget which one it was)? I know you've posted it a million times, I promise to save it this time! :hugs I think I'm going to can up a bunch, I'm over tomatoes this year.

ETA: & do you find canning mellows the hotness of the peppers? I can never seem to get the salsas hot enough. I might try Habanero this time instead of jalapeno.

Good golly, I was having a blast doing some online window shopping, LOL! I scanned the page out of the Ball Canning Book. I hope it's readable. Yes, I have found that canning does mellow the peppers. I don't like as much heat in my salsas because I can always add more. However, if you prefer it out of the jar spicy hot, then double up on the heat before canning. I didn't see any frost this morning even though it was 35F when I finally woke up. I need to take the bags off the okra, but I'm sure they are fine. I found another farmer that is closer than the other orchards that grow concord grapes. I'll be running out to pick some up later. Happy cqanning. One thing I love about the green salsa and corn salsa recipes: no peeling of the tomatoes. And, these recipes are so quick and easy. Yay!
Happy canning!

Brussels sprouts are a winter crop. Ground can get exhausted. Mulch and compost regularly. I joined a very cool Facebook group with experts giving advice on when to plant. Plant above ground fruiters with waxing moon and below ground veg with waning.
I think I may just plant in planters next spring and leave my gardens fallow for a year. I keep putting chicken poo in them and turning it, so by the time I use it, I should have good crop of veggies.
