Summertime.... ah, the good ole summertime! How I love the gardens full of ripe vegetables and better yet, a bunch of them on my countertop waiting to be eaten.
I don't garden.
That was always hubby's pride and joy, growing things, planting and hoeing and pulling weeds. Not me. But, I do love to cook, can and freeze what comes off the vine!
Sometimes I go to the Farmer's Market, sometimes I wander next door to my son-in-law's garden, and sometimes I buy veggies at the grocer. They all are so, so good.
Tomatoes are in season right now and SIL had more than he needed. Can't let them go to waste, now can I?
I froze some so I can have some yummy veggie/tomato soup next Winter. I put them in a hot water bath to peel them...........
After I deseeded them, I chopped them up and brought them to a boil on the stove.
Cooked and cooled and ready for freezer containers...........
Summertime means that the sunflowers are in bloom. Daughter Shirley and I found these at a farm near Surry, Virginia.
Hope you are having a grand and glorious summer and lots of good veggies!
