Yesterday my wife made a batch of dill pickles; slices and spears; I love the spears! Must have about a dozen pints! :D Today I made another batch of tomatoes to freeze; I must have about 45 pints of frozen tomatoes! We really had a good crop this year! 8-)

Yesterday and today I started to put in my garden! Tomatoes; cucumbers; and peppers! I keep saying every fall that I am done with the garden; but I get that itch every spring! :mrgreen:

My wife already cut into it! part of it went into a BLT I had for supper! Other tomatoes we had turned into 28 cups of frozen tomatoes. I blanch them, skin them, cut them in chunks, boil them, bag them and freeze them in two cup zip lock bags and freeze them! There are still a lot of them in the garden! Darn squirrels want a share of them also! :lol2:

Now don't be prejudiced. Squirrel tastes just fine.
