Kelly and I attended the hay auction that happens every Saturday morning at 9 in Wooster, OH. We are pretty stocked up in hay for winter, but lately they have been selling eggs and produce at the end of the auction. Last week, Kelly brought home sweet corn and melons.
Thanks to Brigetta, my escaping sheep, I have almost no sweet peppers since she ate all but one of them down to nothing and my tomatoes got in late and are only just starting to produce, so we thought we’d try to pick up some of each to supplement our garden and get some canning and freezing done.
We bought some pumpkins for sheep treats and Alex chose one to practice carving for Halloween – since it won’t be good that long. We bought a mixed box of peppers and some quarts boxes of yellow banana and Anaheim peppers and several quarts of small Roma tomatoes to add to my homegrown paste tomatoes. I canned 4 jars and we cooked down a big pot of sauce for spagetti and later meatball sandwiches. I finally got the peppers all cut up and frozen this afternoon while it rained.
