Makin' SALSA!!

Our garden has done really well for us first timers!  I primarily grew it so the kids would have a fun little project and so I could make salsa!  I've been waiting very patiently all.summer.long.

Last Saturday (and again today) were the days!
I first stopped by this super cuteness of a farm stand with the boys to get a few more tomatoes.  I had a good variety of Celebrities, Big Boys and Romas, but needed to add a few more to the mix.  Also picked up some fresh jalapeno and green peppers as well as onions.
Sort of filling in the recipe I guess.
Listen to me talking garden talk like I know anything....
Then I just sat back and admired how yummy everything looked. 
Then I admired my new metal basket I picked up at a yard sale that morning. It's cute, no?
And then magically 14 bottles of this deliciousness appeared on my counter ready for cute labels! 
My new 50's housewife name is now "Betty."

I'm posting the salsa recipe I used over on my recipe site tomorrow if at all interested.  It was really easy and it tastes SO good!

Oh YUM! I have some (store-bought) salsa in the fridge, but it doesn't look as good as yours!
I came over from SITS - love your blog!

Looks YUMMY!! We planted tomatoes but that was it for this year. My hubby loves to make his own salsa.

Dearest Betty,
I am now anxiously awaiting an invite to your home theater to watch a chick flick while eating chips and salsa...I'll get the movie and the chips!
