Let's Talk About Tomatoes Instead!

Now that we have had our first rain, I heard that we should quickly pick all our tomatoes as to save them from getting blight.  Well, my husband being a farmer, created his own special awning for them, protecting them from the cooler wet nights. I'm sure that next year the awning will have a remote control from the house.

I've had a wonderful harvest this year and if you want to know what to do with all the extra tomatoes, check out the simple secret at MGCC.
We have had a successfull weekend making Salsa!  Forty pints is enough for this year.

If you want a great recipe, check out Judy's Salsa.  You 'll keep making it over and over. I loved watching my daughter touch all the sealed jars as she was wondering,  "Are they really sealed?"  Remember, to know if they are sealed, there needs to be a slight indention and if you're good at hearing...you'll hear a little ping... as it snaps out the air.

  1. There's such satisfaction in hearing that 'ping'. You'll enjoy that salsa all year - I love mine on eggs, on grilled cheese sandwiches, on quiche....
    The two phones on the counter next to the salsa made me smile - accoutrements of the modern kitchen!

  5. Your tomato 'greenhouse' is fabulous! Now...if only I had a shop wall to plant tomatoes against.

    May your salsa supply be sufficient until next season!

  6. I am thinking that the little boy on MGCC might be your grandson. Am I correct? I love your salsa harvest. I'll bet your home smelled delicious!

  7. I love seeing all the fruit of your labour lined up on your counter. We may have to stop by with a bag of tortilla chips!

  8. Oh, just look at all of those beautiful filled jars. I love homegrown tomatoes, but I don't have the pleasure but a very few times each year.

  9. When canning that ping sound is like music to the ear. A good harvest of tomatoes for you.
