Cucs, Jalopenos, & Tomatoes

Our 2016 backyard little garden is growing better than last year..not sure why.

Well, this time we have the powered egg shells and some lime mixed in with the soil for the tomatoes to prevent them rotting out from the bottom.  See those jalapeños?? I NEVER have trouble with them, they grow SO well and fast!  I slice them thick and store them in a jar in the fridge with white vinegar. They’ll keep for almost-ever, and the vinegar itself is great for flavoring Mexican style dishes.

Son Taliesin and I went blackberry picking! Yum! I am searching for raw blackberry recipes because I don’t feel like cooking in this North Carolina’s heat.
