    Nice!
  • The tomato plants are doing well!

    I keep forgetting...

    I finally have a grape tomato w red on it!  My bigger tomato plants are yielding 1 fruit per branch only.  It looks like something clipped the other flowers off...

    The romas?  Hell yeah.  I'll be making sauce!

     Have them too. Ended up with 3 quarts of pickled beets. Lots of work but I'm disturbingly obsessed. They taste great too. Nice colors. 

  • LoujoeLoujoe Posts: 4,756
    Threw some ginger and stray carrots in there too.

  • Lovely Rob, my tomato plants are doing well too :)
  • LoujoeLoujoe Posts: 4,756
    Awesome^^

    first time canning over an open fire. Worked great. Boiled a massive pot of water in no time.

    Ive been picking blackberries at my folks which were nice, at my house we have lots of greengages. Im not sure what to do with them all.  If i dont pick them, they'll fall and make the end of the garden all sqiushy. Any ideas?
  • LoujoeLoujoe Posts: 4,756
    Yes! Put in pan add some sugar keep stirring til it thickens a bit. (I did with raspberries added pectin too) Blackberry sauce/jam. Will keep in fridge for 3 weeks. Or wash and freeze them. Put in shakes. Muffins, scomes. Add to a salad. Enjoy
