I just finished

Canning 18 half-pints of jalapenos from my garden . I used a very basic pickling recipe , 1c vinegar , 1c water 1tbsp kosher <I used sea salt> . Processed them in my wife's steam canner , and increased the time 50% over water-bath time . Last time I looked there were 11 sealed <all the first batch and 1 from the 2nd> and a couple more on the cusp ... jars are still pretty hot . I picked 85 peppers from my 4 plants , and about half of them had gone red . Some I tossed from insect damage , a handful went into the freezer . Those are destined for some salsa . The canned ones will warm up those cold winter daze on some nachos ... and sandwiches ... and anything else I can ! It's going to be hard to wait a couple of weeks to try these ... -- Snag 16 of 18 ! Watched Ma , Grandma , and my wife but this is my first time . I'm hyped !

that sound of plinks from canning always makes us laugh too. :)
i did 13 qts of tomato chunks Tuesday and have about another 100 lbs of tomatoes to process in the coming week (along with many still not picked).
we also had a good pepper harvest, Ma spent most of yesterday making stuffed green peppers and cinamon rolls. over 100 peppers and half the crop still on the plants.
there's two pans in the oven of the stuffed peppers that will be done in a bit.
right now i'm contemplating a rare cup of coffee and a cinamon roll for breakfast. coffee makes me too hyper so i don't usually have it but i've been under the weather and coffee is a good boost for the system so at least i feel like moving.
