Carrying on

As sad as I am, my garden keeps producing and I have to keep harvesting and doing something with the harvest.

In the past week, I have picked and processed this lot:

The beans were blanched and frozen in vacuum sealed packets. The tomatoes along with a homegrown courgette, onions, garlic and basil, were made into more pasta sauce. I think I got 5 packets, despite only 4 showing here:

That makes a total of 9 sauces, 5 jars of sauce and loads of beans.

I now have another bowlful of tomatoes to process and probably one or two more bowls still to ripen. The courgette has probably had it. Picked the last one this morning. Maybe some soup?


  1. Reminds me of my house right now. Sad, but carrying on with things that need doing. I think the Queen would be proud of us.

    God bless.

  2. You will be pleased you have those beans over the winter months. Well worth the effort now.

  3. Oooh, all that lovely pasta sauce, I've been doing some but not so many of the tomatoes were mine this time.

    1. Also good basis for curry, chilli, soup etc. Still loads of tomatoes left so may make more.
