I feel for you--we had 3 years of wet--now we have drought. Can't win. Whereas our squash plants drowned last year (and the year before, and the year before that), now they are burnt and wilted.

Not really canning, but slicing cucumbers to make my son some pickles. He just loves them and it's such an easy recipe so it's pickles for TT.

How do you cook swiss chard?

Here are some of pics of some of the stuff I hauled home from the garden. Not pictured are the green beans, kale, chard, onions, okra, lettuce, or beets. I've dealt with the corn, bok choy, and dragon tongue beans (that mess of stuff in the right-hand corner of the 1st pic). I'm working on the purple pole beans (last picture) and ate 3/5 cobs of corn. The other 2 are going into a corn salad tomorrow.

Soulvaki,

Another good idea, is some tomato sauce for future pastas and lasagnes.

Have lovely August.
Ciao, Margi.

Corn salad - check, 4-bean salad - check. Wings marinating - check. But, I'm still freezing green beans from yesterday. Ugh. So many beans...and the pole beans just started this week. Once the beans are done, I will be making Swiss Chard with 4 cheeses tarts in the mini-pie maker (those will go in the freezer) followed by egg rolls, my grandma's cole slaw recipe and her fudge cake recipe. Should be an interesting day in the kitchen--hope to have everything done (and the kitchen cleaned up) by 3:30 when the DH is supposed to arrive.
