Spiced peaches and other fun stuff

DH and I have to leave town tomorrow for a funeral on Friday and I've spent the afternoon trying to get this produce done up into something yummy before I lose it.

I had enough peaches to do two quarts of spiced peaches plus two little bowls for snarfing.

I used the tomatoes and made four 12 ounces jars of salsa. Have you seen the new quilted jelly jars that hold 12 ounces? They are so pretty.

I got 15 pints of purple hull peas. They look so yummy.

There was enough okra for 2 more pints of pickled okra and just enough banana peppers for a jar of pickled peppers.

I hate that I'm going to miss the farmer's market on Friday and Saturday, but it can't be helped. Maybe they won't have anything good.
