It's that time of year when we are reaping the harvest--benefiting from all of our earlier hard labor--and approaching a vegetable glut! Hot weather makes us want to cook less, so think about making salads in the morning or on the weekend to have for supper, then you just need to slice some tomatoes and cucumbers and maybe steam some corn. Enjoy the bounty now!

If you still have homegrown tomatoes here is a recipe to try! We recently made this chutney for our reception at the Herb Harvest Fall Festival featuring foods of the British Isles—it was my favorite recipe of the evening. The members of the Ozark Unit of the HSA prepared all of the foods after researching through many cookbooks and this recipe is adapted from a recipe from The Irish Pub Cookbook by Margaret Johnson.

What's going on in your garden? As the harvest season is peaking and some of our summer vegetable and herb plants are winding down, it is time for preserving, tidying up and getting ready to plant a few fall crops.

If you want to be the most popular gardener in your neighborhood, plan an end-of-season tomato tasting party. It’s a great way to make friends, celebrate the harvest and find new tomato varieties to plant in your garden next year.

Small-batch preserving is perfect for gardeners with small gardens or those with vegetables that don’t ripen all at once. It's also an easy, time-saving alternative to marathon canning sessions. Here's how to fill the freezer with small batches of tomatoes, peppers and zucchini.

If you have a sunny southern window, you just might be able to enjoy fresh tomatoes through the winter. Tiny Tim is an heirloom variety that’s a perfect “pet tomato” for growing indoors this time of year.
Combining our peak of the season summer vegetables--tomatoes and chiles to make salsa--results in a fiery and flavorful dish. Homemade is easy to do and so much better than store-bought. Chop it by hand or use the food processor.
