The garden grew in size this year, and is now overgrown. The sunflowers are 12 feet high, and the lemon cucumbers are using the tomato cages to climb on and over. It is wonderful to go out and pick and let that decide what we will be having for dinner. Pumpkins are ready, a few zucchini, carrots were picked yesterday, and of course, hundreds of tomatoes and cucumbers. Wade made yummy salsa, tomato sauce, and tuna salad today. I made tomato paste for home made ketchup that ferments for three days.

I also made some fermented pickles, out of lemon cucumbers and green cucumbers. Grape leaves are added to keep them crispy.
