My Cup Runneth Over!

My garden has taken off and my cup seriously runneth over!  But I am not complaining one bit...when life gives you tomatoes, make SALSA!  And that is exactly what my daughter did...she began chopping up our bounty of tomatoes, green peppers, onions, anaheim chilis and make the best salsa I've had in a long time!

Squash and zucchinni are coming out of our ears but I asked around and I've been cutting them up (or shredding them), then freezing them on a cookie sheet before placing them in freezer bags...this way they will freeze individually and will cook up really nice this winter when I'm craving my summer garden!


These are the most out of control weeds in my yard, but aren't they beautiful?


And the sunflowers I planted are now blooming...the bees love these flowers and their faces are just huge and gorgeous!


Oh my gosh, this was the best tasting salsa and it makes you feel good knowing you grew almost all of the ingredients yourself!



All this good food makes all that hard work in the spring worth it!
