Oh, my tomatoes are starting to ripen.
My jalapeno are ready to pick.
My onions, are almost ready.
How come, all summer I wait and wait for my garden to grow, and then all at once, it is here. The frenzy of canning and dehydrating. The late night salsa making.
I am so thankful for the harvest, but isn’t it a lot like child-birth? At the end of the summer, I never want to plant anything again. But at the end of winter, oh I am ready for a bigger garden! But I will admit it is so nice to have all the cans of salsa, tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, frozen veggies that I know that I have grown. Great feeling even with all the pain.
Hope you are having fun gardening!
