I say Tomatoes!

You probably think that sewing is all that I do, but you would be wrong!

This weekend I went to my friend Kathy's to get some tomatoes from the garden she and her brother have. Last year, I got enough tomatoes from them to can 39 pints.

Here is the box of tomatoes that I broght home before I did anything with them. I knew I had too many when Jamie winced to pick it up and carry it into the house!

Hours later, I got them all canned. Actually, I started on them Sunday afternoon, and finished the last canner after noon on Monday.
49 pints. So much for not needing to do as many as last year!
The good news is, that we will be able to have lots of pasta, chili, etc., this winter!
