do you use them for cooking or are dried tomatoes a tasty snack?

I use them both for cooking and for snacking! They are delicious either way! :D

awwww yisss, dehydrating my obnoxiously large supply of tomatoes I have. THEY JUST KEEP COMING. I like how it makes a little tomato rainbow.

I GREW ALL THESE RED KURI SQUASHES I’M SO HAPPY! They are the perfect few serving size (though I might steam up a few and make a pie, yumm!)

AAHHH SO MANY GRAPES!! Not so many apples, still waiting on a few of the trees to finish ripening and for the rest of the Concord grapes as well, but the white grapes were all PERFECT. So delicious. I had to take a panorama there is so much! &lt;3 I&#8217;ve currently got 2 dehydrators going full of grapes to make raisins and I want to try and make jam also!! Maybe also some fruit leather.

LOOK AT THESE BEAUTIES! They start out purple but then turn yellow (with little purple tops) I don&#8217;t know the name of them, they came with a bunch of other random tomato plants my friend gave me, the plant itself is huge, I&#8217;ve never grown a tomato plant that big, there are hundred of tomatoes on it.

my beautiful musquee de provence pumpkin! I&#8217;m sad my plants didn&#8217;t really produce more like last year, but that is ok because I got a bunch of kuri squashes and stuff. This photo is just sooo fall though.

So many grapes! This doesn’t even begin to show how many grapes are ready to pick :’( I need helpers

 I HAVE WATERMELONS!! I grew them in my greenhouse in big pots, there are 5 and they are all pretty small BUT I’M SO PROUD! These are the Takii gem melons, they did extremely well. ALSO THEY ARE DELICIOUS. I learned a lot this year and next year I think I will be super successful with them!

None of the melons I planted outside survived. EXCEPT ONE!! Which I posted a pic of here too, I just discovered it last week COMPLETE WITH A MELON! The melon was under some pumpkin plants and the plant itself was obscured by a bunch of morning glories) I think this kind is a local Comptche melon, I need to ask my neighbor, it was from saved seed from a melon he gave me last year!

Pear butt!!!
