Pre Tomato Blitz

1:02 PM

Just a little sneak peak for the big tomatoe blitz that will happen when the tomatoes are all in for the salsa and spaghetti sauce. I had waited until I had enough to warrant quartering and putting in freezer bags to freeze until I am ready for the grand finale. Mark was generous enough to help me out and it made quick work of it..I'm not sure how many pounds we did (ended up with over 5 gallon bags), but they were beautiful tomatoes and the garden has been doing wonderful. Tomatoes are coming in, full swing. I've been selling some of them, cherry tomatoes, ocra, cukes, beans, banana peppers and sweet bread at some local shops and doing well. It helps offset the investment of seed and plants and gas money. The best part of freezing tomatoes is that you don't have to blanch them, just cut and pack and when you take them out to use, the skins come off that much easier. So, that's all for now.

  2. I am envious! LOL ;). I only like home grown tomatoes. Grew up on them so I got spoiled. I won't buy them from the grocery produce dept, hubby does, but he wasn't spoiled like I was. We are trying to grow some. But they don't seem to do that great where we live. We have a few green Romas and one other tomato (don't remember what kind if is.) I can't wait for them to ripen. I hope the plants produce more before winter weather hits.

    Blessings, Jessica
