Tuesday Garden Party #9

Finally a Harvest!

This is more like it!  I just love it when everything in the garden starts to produce at the same time.  In my basket this morning are a couple of strawberries (saved from the chipmunks), Roma and Early Girl Tomatoes, the first cucumber, banana peppers, jalapeno peppers and green peppers.

The strawberries, tomaotes and cucumber will be our lunch today.  The banana peppers and a couple of the green peppers will be made into Sweet and Sour Pepper Relish.  The rest of the green peppers and jalapenos will be made into Jalapeno Pepper Jelly. 

The Jalapeno Pepper Jelly is a TNT recipe from the Ball Blue Book.  I will post it in the next few days, after I make the jelly.  The relish is from the Ball Blue Book too.  I have not made it before, so will hold off on posting for a couple of weeks, until I know it is worth eating.
