I'm currently working on a new product for where I work at. It'll be a solar powered drip irrigation system that utilized rain water collection.
The next versions will be designed for greenhouses.
After a couple of weeks of saving up my tomatoes I finally had enough to do a 'sauce day' this past weekend and canned up 30 pints of pizza/pasta sauce.
I also did 19 pints of dilly beans, 8 half pints of pickled garlic, and 3 quarts of pickled eggs, while I had my canning gear up and running in the downstairs kitchen.
Now I'm saving tomatoes up for a "soup day" to put away a few quarts of tomato soup base. I usually put up about 10-12 quarts of it, for tomato soup and for a chili base during the black months. I LOVE chili in the winter; soak some beans overnight, brown up some venison burger in the morning and toss all the ingredients into a pot with some extra water and some dried hot peppers from the garden and let it simmer on the woodstove all day....
Nothing better than coming home to that after a long day in a cold snap!
Also; gratuitous shot of the sunflowers that have started blooming, and have actually gotten TALLER since they developed flower heads.
