Good morning everyone! My name is Missy and I'm from PA. I have a garden for the first time in my life and have no idea what I'm doing lol. I pretty much expected to fail so terribly that nothing would grow but much to my surprise my small garden is growing out of control. I planted cucumbers, tomatoes, MexiBell peppers, banana peppers, green bell peppers, cherry peppers, spinach and mesclun lettuce. Only 1 plant of each except for the spinach and lettuce, I planted too much of those (lots of lessons learned for next year lol).
Now, I need to figure out what to do once they are ready to harvest. I would like to pickle the cukes, banana and cherry peppers. Also plan to make my own salsa. Can I do all of that with just the hot water bath canner or do I HAVE to buy a pressure cooker? The research I've done so far has me scared to death of botulism. Most of what I grow will be stored in the frig and will probably be gone without a few months.
Please give me lots of advice...I need it lol.
