Our tomato plants have produced really well this year, but with only four plants, you never have enough at one time to can them – or at least, enough to make it worth while! 😉 And we can’t eat them fast enough.
So, instead of tossing some more tomatoes out – I went yesterday morning to the Farmer’s Market and bought two flats of canning tomatoes for $16.00 to round out what I had from our garden.
Yesterday morning and afternoon I canned 13 quarts, two batches of them and had almost a full flat left over. Here is the photo of that round –
I finished them up this morning and have to say the practice sure is making it easier. I had the process streamlined and it went really fast….now if I can just remember how I did it next time I can tomatoes! (Next year, maybe?).
Now, I REALLY have to get back to quilting!
