Me: Honey, I think I want a garden.
Rob: Ok, let's get some seeds and start planting!
Me: I hope you know what you're doing, because I do not have a green thumb!
About a month later....all the seedlings are dead!
One Saturday night in late April/early May.....
Me: Honey, I think I want a gardern.
Rob: Ok, I hope it isn't like the seeds!
Me: *rolls eyes*
Rob: What do you want to plant?
Me: Tomatoes! And peppers! And onions! And broccoli! And cauliflower! And more tomatoes!!!
Fast forward to June and our garden is over flowing! We can't give all the peppers and tomatoes we have away.
|Broccoli, peppers and cukes|
|This is the third time we've picked the peppers!|
**DISCLAIMER** I'm sooooooo bad at following directions and measuring when it comes to cooking! I just usually go with it and taste as I go so any food blogs I post I will try to link to the original recipe, but it is guaranteed that I did not follow the directions 100%
First I washed the jars and lids in hot water:
|Ball Pint Jars|
|Ice bath for the 'matoes!|
|Cut off the stemmy part and took off the skin|
|They smelled awesome!|
|Adding the yummy!|
|Where's the chips??|
Overall, it was super easy to do and it was a great first adventure in canning!!!
