Do you remember this time last year?  I had been busy for weeks, filling two freezers with tomatoes, beans, broccoli, peppers, applesauce, etc.
Well, it's a good thing I filled them so full last fall, as this year has not been nearly as productive.  The garden did not produce like it did last year, and we left for a whole month during the peak of the harvest.  The tomatoes will be fine for spaghetti sauce and chili, the beans are still great in the soups, and the peppers can still flavor the sauces.  I did get some apples and have made some apple sauce, I've done some freezer pickles, and I have pears and nectarines coming.  Otherwise, it's been an off year for the freezer foods.

Well it looks like your pretty well stocked! I've never heard of freezing pickles. We didn't have much of a garden this year but we're having a bumper crop of banana peppers. I need to can more of them tomorrow!

thank goodness, you had some left over from last years stocking.

I've followed you on your trip and the wedding, and enjoying all your post, I just didn't get around to commenting.

But why did someone's alarm go off at 1:30 AM?!?! CrAzY

Take care
