Gosh I am cutesie ! Those harvests look and sound AH-Mazing! After our hail storms had shredded my entire garden I had basically given up that it was too late for anything to make a comeback and I was out there just the other day and found a few new zukes and yellow crooknecks, my cukes started producing, and I even found one tomato plant with a few tomatoes started. It wasn't much but it made my day Very Happy

Paste tomatoes and cukes by the bunch. Second planting of golden beets, lettuce and radishes. The sweet Italian peppers along with the bells have been the best we've ever grown (large and meaty). Picked three eggplants yesterday for grilling tonight. Have a fairly steady supply of Black from Tula toms (best) and better boys. Cherries are winding down.

O my it is SEPTEMBER 1! First frost date is usually Sept 7 Shocked 

This weekend I put up 7 pints of roasted tomatoes, 17 cups of salsa, 2 pints of dilly beans. Then I blanched and froze 2 pounds of green beans and an 3.5 lbs of chard. There is an armload of broccoli to yet freeze and the counter is covered with more tomatoes and peppers and summer squash.

I bought a kitchen scale this summer. I am not sure I really like finding out how little an arm load of chard weighs rofl

Yup, winter is a coming but before it does I hope we have some good long Indian summer to grow more cool weather crops.
My chinese snow peas are blooming and producing again. The broccoli got pruned and some is making biggish sprouts again. Enough that I have some to freeze again.
There is a last planting of beets and carrots and bok choi and cilantro up. I hope to cover some of that with a cold frame when the eggplant is done.

My Whirlpool glass top says ok for canning and I bought a pressure canner that says ok for glass top stoves. But I haven't had the courage or the need to use it yet except for water bath canning.

Do you have a gas grill that is sturdy enough to hold that size pot of water. My son water bath cans on his using a deep stock pot. Small batches only.

Tomatoes and at least one zucchini and/or yellow squash every day

Corn.  We have had five meals and I have four ears blanched and frozen.  It was my first time to blanch and freeze corn so I had to announce it!

Green peppers and jalapeno peppers.

Parsley, basil and rosemary.

I picked two red potatoes (smaller than a marble, lol) that were above the ground, washed them and ate them right there.  The plants are dying back so I am hoping for a harvest soon!

I just looked at several  turkey fryers for sale online, and they are in the 35,000 to 40,000 BTU range.  Several years ago I bought two propane burners that are about 55,000 BTU each, and they work great for both pressure canning and water bathing.  Based on that, I'm sure your FIL's fryer would work just fine.

For me, today I got to harvest, in between the rain clouds that is, one lonely pea and a carrot for my youngest son and a carrot and two really tiny radishes for my oldest son. They weren't allowed to go to the garden with me because it was thundering and lightening. They stood at the door watching me walk down the street crying. So I had to bring back something for them.

I have plenty of tomatoes, green beans, peppers, and pumpkins to pick but waiting for my boys to help me.

It has not frosted yet. I am keeping my fingers/toes/teeth crossed hoping for yet one more week......

I put up another peck of beans and tomatoes last weekend. Some of the dry beans are showing signs of maturity. Not sure yet on the corn, I am letting it mature on the stalks a while yet. Probably until a hard frost comes. Still picking broccoli side sprouts. The peas are producing again, not a lot but enough to snack on.
