Very clean looking tomatoesWe've been harvesting some things from the gardens. Here are preparations for some of the tomato sauce that's in the works these days. Roasted garlic and fine-chopped, sauteed onions are part of the recipe. The sauce gets canned and stored in our basement cold room.

Thanks. Yeah, those were clean specimens. Sometimes we have a fair number where the skins have split, but it's rare that we get scabs from bugs biting them. We grow jalapeno peppers and cucumbers in the greenhouse too. Usually the cuke leaves wind up mottled with yellow areas, but the plants continue to grow and produce lots of healthy, clean cukes.Very clean looking tomatoes
Usually the ground is dry and warm enough to till and plant early seeds in mid April. Unless it's a very rainy April — in which case the ground might be a bit soggy until around the first of May. We tend to harvest the last of our outdoor-grown stuff by mid November, though killing frost can sometimes occur early in the month. So roughly seven months, in many years.How long is your growing season?
