Last week while I was feeling under the weather , I didn't venture out to the garden much. The deer eat all my tomatoes , so unless we get some serious rain , my garden is through except for the peppers. No more salsa , spaghetti sauce or that wonderful tomato sauce with basil , I was planning to make.
I may check with one of our local farms and see if they have any tomatoes for sale. I love tomatoes and can't imagine going through the winter without some canned whole tomatoes , sauces and salsa. I've only preserved 2 quarts and 1 pint of salsa and 3 quarts and 1 pint of tomatoes.
I'm so disappointed , next year I hope to have a fence around the garden. It's really aggravating , putting so much time and effort into the garden and have your harvest eaten by wildlife.
Glad they don't like garlic , I've got my hard neck garlic cleaned up and ready to be stored. I'll be doing the soft necks this week , hope to try braiding some of them.
