Well, first we have puppies
DH went outside the other morning. All 4 puppies rushed him in a puppy stampede, tripping over a stainless steel bowl, sending it rocking and ringing. I opened the door and spoke to pups. They RAN back to me as fast as they could in a blur of black and tan, stepping in the bowl and setting it ringing again., "It's the Gong Show," he said.
pulp and juice come out one side, and seeds and peel come out the other end. We keep calling it mater poop.
So far, I have gotten about 6 pints of sauce. I got three pints today from about 24 cups of tomatoes.
I made some pickles before the cucumber plants succumbed to what I suspect are squash bugs, while the squash are still thriving. I have 7 more cucumber plants in containers-they are bush type pickling cukes. I got photos of the okra and watermelon rind pickles, not sure about the cucumbers.
