Saving the harvest

Jalepenos, cayenne and pepperoncini peppers.

I’m ashamed that I haven’t posted more photos and stories about our gardening adventures this summer. In a nutshell, we failed at tomatoes, but succeeded with basil, eggplants, melons and peppers. Our late crop of radishes (both red and icicle) and turnips is generous, and the carrots are starting to come on. In a week or so, we will probably try harvesting our sweet potatoes.

In the meantime, we’ve been experimenting (and by “we” I mostly mean Zach) with pickling and preserving our excess veggies and goodies from the farmers’ market.

Turnips, radishes, carrots, curry and green onions.

Beets, okra, peppers and cucumbers

Icicle horseradish

Fellow gardeners: How do you preserve the things you grow?


About crystalwayward

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.
