The garden season is coming to an end, and I have to admit it comes as a bit of relief! Everything did AMAZING this year...we had vegetables coming out our ears! This is one bowl of at least 8 full bowls of tomatoes that came out of our garden this year. We had so many we were giving bags and bags away just trying to keep up with the next batch that were ready to pick.
We ate lots of salsa and yummy spaghetti sauces this year! This possible last batch of 3 bowl fulls is becoming sundried tomatoes...we did a batch of these about a month ago and had them on EVERYTHING. OH MY GOODNESS, it was sooooooo good! Sundried tomatoes make even the most plain sandwhich taste amazing!
Living here in the Seattle area, we don't actually get to 'sundry' the tomatoes. The sun seems have decided that summer is now over and it's fall now. It hasn't stopped raining in days. Great news though, you can still make sundried tomatoes. We have our oven loaded right now, set at 175 degrees and these little guys will be in there at least 24 hours. Probably more though since the oven is so full with them. The shocking part of this is, it may look like a lot of tomatoes, but once they are done, they will probably all fit in one large mason jar and be eaten in about a week! Even so, it is soooooooo worth it for that sundried yumminess! :)
In addition to all this tomatoe yumminess, I am so excited to say that I FINALLY GOT INTO RAVELRY! WoooooHooooo! Lots of people have linked to me to add to friends like (THANK YOU) but I am still figuring out what to do with that feature. I found the Lucky Lurker Group with lots of people working on their first installment of lucky lurker (I am a member now and getting the hang of posting in there). I also found two doggy knitting groups that I had to join :) I am a sucker for anything animal related!!! :) Come find me in Ravelry, I'd love to hear from you!!!!
