It's the little things
Tuesday, June 18, 2019
Today after work I decided to go check progress on my tomatoes. I don't check every day because fortunately once they're in the ground they are fairly low maintenance plants. Well, guess what? I have tomatoes coming already! They are just babies, but I was so excited to see them! Around here, they normally come in August, so they are early this year. With my Mom's homemade salsa recipe I can't wait to get cooking.
Mom's recipe is for canning...she's a canner, I am not. She does pickles, peaches, salsa, grape juice, applesauce, apricot jam, dilly beans and more. I love the idea of preserving in glass jars but I'm not about to buy a canner, store a canner, or buy all the jars and lids or go through the long process of doing it. No sir! So I will convert her recipe to something I can pour into ziplock bags and put in the freezer. It's a very good recipe, so as long as I use the ingredients in it the results should be about the same.
So those little baby green tomatoes kind of made my day today. Oh and I also found a cute tortoise retro Calvin Klein frame second hand to put my next set of lenses in. As it turns out, they're little too. Big glasses don't work for me, which makes it hard to find glasses I like since the big ones seem to be eternally in style. So yep, it really is the little things!
