Garden Round Up 10/5

Every week I think that I'm not going to have much of a garden update, but we've been having a little bit of sun this fall, which has helped to ripen our tomatoes.

I picked about 7 pounds of fresh tomatoes & made more of the fresh tomato sauce for the freezer, as well as a fresh tomato paella for dinner. I also finally tracked down pine nuts, so I made 6 batches of pesto for the freezer.

I still have a ton of peppers that I need to deal with, but no more cucumbers. My kids are sad about the lack of fresh cucumbers in the garden - picking them after school was a highlight this summer. :-)

I forgot to upload the pictures of the tomatoes & basil, so I'll leave you with a look back of my kids in the garden earlier in the summer, with my father-in-law.
