Let the Sauces Begin

I am overwhelmed with tomatoes and spaghetti squash and cucumbers and zucchini.  I have the dehydrators on every day and have made zucchini breads and zucchini muffins and am starting tomato sauces today.  I hoped for red peppers by now but the green ones will do for the first batch or batches.
There are so any spaghetti squashes and they are so large, I wondered if they were indeed spaghetti squashes, so we had one for dinner last night.  Oh yes.  Oh yum.  It was what it claimed to be and it was delicious.
We have our first watermelon!  I’ve tried to grow watermelon in the past without luck.  This is the year.
As some of you don’t have the means or the inclination to shred zucchini, I’m happy to provide you with two cup measurements of same, which is what most recipes call for.  I can pack them in a Seal-a-Meal wrap so you can freeze them. 
By the way, all of our tomatoes are field grown.  A couple of roque tomato plants have popped up in the greenhouses and I let them grow.  We’ll get some loveliness from them after the first (I can’t say it – starts with “F” and ends in “rost”) hits the field ones. 
I’m trying really hard to get some pickles and relishes made but am finding it hard to do with picking, watering, delivering and attempting to plant so I’ll keep selling those items until I have time.
