How To Spend a Late Summer Saturday

It all started here:


And that turned into this, multiplied by 6 (and those tomato plants are not done producing yet)!


I spent 4 hours peeling and chopping...


...eventually filling four pots.


The canning pot doing its job.


Net? 44 pints of stewed tomatoes. Not bad for a day's work.

Looks familiar, only you have it down way better than I do. I'm onto tomatoes tomorrow.

Barbara said...

Do those ever look good! I'd trade you some chocolate for a jar of tomatoes!

Jo said...

I loved stewed tomatoes. Can I come over to your house? We'll make some great pasta.

I'll bring the wine. :-)

Ruth - it's a yearly thing. Trade you for some peaches!

Barbara - it's a deal!

And jo, come on over and we'll have a great meal!
