September – Eye of the Storm

Remember back when I said the garden was DONE!  I was wrong.  That was just the eye of the storm.  It was calm and quiet for a few weeks.  It was so quiet, in fact, that we even sneaked away for a long weekend of vacation — since there wasn’t much happening here.  Maybe it was the extreme heat followed by the unseasonably cool weather that stunted the production of tomatoes, peppers and squash; but now they are back with a vengeance.

I came back from vacation to find a garden full of ripe red tomatoes, red and green peppers and more squash!  In fact, I picked 14.5 POUNDS of tomatoes.  Time to get busy canning again!
