Home Grown

Do you remember a few weeks ago I posted about plowing our garden and planting onions? Well, I'm gonna show you what those onions look like now!!!!

And this is what our tomatoes look like.

This is what our green beans look like.

And this, this our corn.

Those green beans will be canned. Hopefully we will have about 120 quarts. The corn will be cut off the cob and frozen. The tomatoes will be made into the best salsa you've ever eaten. The onions will be used in the salsa and the rest will be stored for use all winter long.
A garden is a lot of work. Planting, weeding, picking. Especially on days like today when it is seriously 100 degrees and the humidity is stifling. But, if you've ever eaten home grown food you know that it just can't be beat. Nothing that comes out of a box or a jar even comes close. Trust me. I know of which I speak.


  1. Now that's a serious garden there! You and your family have your work cut out for you, but it certainly is worth it all. I love love love homemade salsa. I hope to can some this year - it's been about 3 years since the last salsa-making around here. Stay cool! We're in the hay here. Whew. -Tammy

  2. I love it! I wish my garden was that big - is it too late to plant a few tomatoes?

  3. Your garden is BEAUTIFUL! I'm so jealous! One of my favorite things to do with homegrown tomatoes...the classic BLT. Comfort food at its finest!
