The soil and garden beds were prepared. Soil nurtured with compost, coffee grounds, biochar, tree leaves, and eggshells. Raised beds rebuilt and repaired. Growing containers designed, built, filled. The seeds and sets were planted. Plants set out in the beds and containers. Irrigation system installed. Mulch in place. Tending, watering, care. The sun shone with nurturing light. Tomatoes picked, garlic and onions dug. Chilis carefully picked. Tomatoes skinned and chopped. Chilis seeded and chopped. Onions skinned and chopped. Garlic finely diced. Lemon juice, salt, spices mixed in. Cooked, stirred, ladled, and canned. And there they are. Plus, one extra jar that didn't fit in the canner, so that one goes into the fridge for fresher eating. These are my garden efforts, saved in glass for the year ahead. And much more for sauces, fresh meals, and other food and flavors.
