We could not resist putting a face on this tomato that came out of the garden.

Now Bob has retired to our salsa, so we will be enjoying him and his friends all winter.

Canning

Canning

Well I have been canning straight for almost a month now.. .hence the neglected blog.  My tomatoes took their sweet time turning red.. but when they did watch out!! Holy smokes must have gotten about 60 lbs of them… all nice roma paste type tomatoes.

Made:
Catsup
Roasted Tomato Sauce
Diced Tomatoes
2 Kinds of Red Salsa

Also canned:
Green Beans
Green Salsa Verde
Peaches
Pineapple ( was on sale for 1.00 each!)
Plum Jam
Pickles

Still have to do apples… but they are just looking at me…and I am looking back.. My cupboard is PACKED to the gils. My refrigerator is full of pickles, goats milk and homemade root beer. Can you say I need another refrigerator!!

We also froze all that nice corn!
