Have you been worried?...

It's been quite a few days since our last post. Have you been worried? I've been keeping up with all of you but haven't had the time to post anything!! Well, for a few days I was swallowed up by our garden. I barely made it out alive, gulp! Then, we had some company come on Saturday so that meant I had to clean this house which I've sorely neglected since garden days started. I know, excuses, excuses... Seriously, I don't know how you gardenistas have a life and tend to your garden too! JP made some outstanding marinara sauce and I made some salsa from our garden. We'll be making more because the maters are piling up. It really is great to have so much food put away for winter. I know I'll be enjoying it then.
I feel like the tomatoes plants are just laughing at me because it is never ending!!! We have two walls (front and back) of tomatoes. The pepper plants took July off but are in full swing now! JP is gonna have to make some of his "mean green" sauce to use up some of the jalepeños and habañeros. I'm sure he'll do that this week since he's taking a few days vacation. He'll be doing a post on our project we'll be doing tomorrow. The smoker will be working on some pork butts, yum, yum, yum!! Lots of love go into that deal.
So,,,how does your garden grow? Blessings from the holler to you all.

I was! I was worried!!!! :-)))
But I knew that if JP was home, you wouldn't get much blogging done. (ahem!)
Would you mind sharing your recipes for salsa? My tomatoes are just starting to come into season and I need something to do with them!
Yes, I get stuck in my garden too sometimes...hey any excuse for NOT cleaning the house! lol

I bet the mean green sauce is hot as fire, isn't it? I wouldn't even be able to look at it without crying!

YD, sometimes with Samantha & June said...

Mmmmm, I love marinara sauce and salsa. I am so glad that your garden is doing so well!

Yummm... that looks so good! Glad to hear you're okay... I know what you mean about being busy- I fell off the face of the earth lately, too!
