Tomatoes, and Peppers and Herbs...oh my!

September 11th, 2022 at 11:45 pm

The garden is starting to slow down, but we are fortunately still getting a few items. DH picked a bunch of peppers and no, I didn't pickle them! I couldn't resist...I made bell pepper soup with them. We ate some and I froze the rest. 

We had a bunch of tomatoes so I juiced them and canned the juice and realized 4 quarts and 4 pints. Hopefully I will have more to can this week.

My plans are to start picking herbs and drying them. I know some people freeze them in olive oil and honestly, I wish I had the freezer space to do that, but I don't. I just know I'm happy to have them once the weather turns and we can't have them fresh anymore. 

I know I've blogged about making jelly...I have used every jelly jar I owned I think, except for the one I just cleaned out. That's a nice feeling to have so much ready. I use a lot of the jelly as Christmas gifts. 

I did get ambitious and make some cloth Christmas bags to use instead of paper bags or wrapping paper. I've done that in the past, but sadly no one ever gives me a gift back using them. That's fine, I figure it is part of the gift. I wonder if they are using them as gift bags or what.

We received out investment statement...we lost $13K last month. It is getting depressing seeing this month after month. I get that the market is up and down, but I'd like to see a few months where it is up to offset the loss.

    I have made jelly on a small scale, but I found it so messy! You probably have a much bigger kitchen than I do, however! Smile

    I love soup! It's one of my favorite foods. Nothing better as fall approaches then some delicious, homemade soup with some crusty bread!

    Yeah, we've lost so much money in our 401K and IRA, I'm at the point where I wonder if it is even worth it to keep putting money in there anymore. Like it would be safer to put them in CD's, because at least I'd earn 2% interest instead of -15% for the year to date.
