A little harvest

A selection of veg from the garden last night:

We've got corn, zucchini (of course!), my first eggplant/aubergine 'Long Purple' (a bit on the small side), a chilli (Hungarian Hot Wax), some cocktail tomatoes, some Aunt Ruby's German Green tomatoes, and some basil.

The Aunt Ruby's German Green tomatoes are stripy on the outside but green on the inside. They didn't do all that well, so I probably won't grow them next year.

I re-boiled the tomato sauce this morning, and added some cornflour to thicken. I ended up with 2 less bottles but it is a bit thicker now which is good.

Beautiful veggies! I rather like my eggplants on the small size. I just planted a whole tray of tomatoes and hoping they do well.

Looking good! I think I'm going to plant those Brandywine's next year. They look yummy.

We're still in the throws of winter .. just needed to get a little 'fix' of things to come when our summer arrives! Happy canning .. and eating fresh from the land.

Hi Ms Lottie
The BW toms have done exceptionally well for us. I just need to improve on my staking and tying up techniques (tend to be a bit lax on this!)

Hi Mrs Mac
Yes I'll be getting my canning jars out very soon. I've only tried this method once previously and don't have any special equipment but hopefully will manage!
