yeah. already canned 8 jars of roasted sauce. going to can the diced tomatoes (yesterday and today's haul. I still have the other half of tomatoes to pick. probably another 50-60 lbs. not sure what I'm going to do with those.
Peppers are going good too. nice and big bells and huge Italian frying.

Did you guys plant anything this year?

I am astonished that you have a 100+ pound harvest. How many plants do you have? How many space does it take to grow that many tomatoes?

We have some garden boxes is all, a few tomatoes, some giant green peppers that must be anaheims. I'm going to put up some salsa this weekend but nothing like the batches you crank out. Probably going to roast the tomatoes and peppers first tho. Not sure.

Nice! 
I had 4 tomato plants...two which produced no fruit?
lots of cukes, beans, some peppers, plenty of herbs, rhubarb was good in the spring, and still growing your garlic.

 
That garlic is gold! I have never found another variety that stores as well as that one. and I don't know the variety name of that one is to buy more stock if needed.
Share it with others to keep it going.

I've had the occasional plant not produce. I have no idea why that happens.

I didn't take any photos of our harvests yet. we pulled up all the onions and garlic. picked some oregano, green beans, peppers, zucchini, eggplant and cukes so far. no ripe tomatoes yet

 

That's about the same as what I've been doing. Got some corn, and great carrots. What do I do with nearly 200 onions (red, white/yellow)?
 
depending on the variety, some onions will keep for 6 months to a year in cold storage.

I planted some onions too late last spring and they withered in the heat. But they perked back up this winter and seem to be surviving the frost. Don't seem to be getting big though but maybe when the soil starts to warm up... 

TL;DR: I'm a shitty gardener

So pleased to harvest a yellow zucchini! Our housekeeper at work gave me one last year, and it was so good I got some seeds. Can't wait to tell him!

 Started a giant one a few months ago. Just this morning harvested a few yellow squash, some cucumbers, a green zucchini, handful or two of green beans, some bok choy, some carrots and turnips, and most of a head of Chinese cabbage (birds or squirrels or rats got parts of it). Got a dozen (!) tomato plants that are about to produce - but I think birds come eat most of it.

Corn is tasseling! and lots of kale still left to pick.

Biggest problem is the varmints coming to eats everything. Makes me want to throw some sort of giant dome/greenhouse thing over it all.

 
we have a big ol' groundhog in the neighborhood. we've lived here 25 years, never saw one before. I hope he's not too hungry.
