WIP(#9) - Getting Sauced

Let the canning begin!

Yes, it's that time of year.  The tomatoes are coming fast and furious and wait for no one.  This weekend we picked, cleaned, roasted and canned over 120 tomatoes.  It is what I would call a good start.

I've been waiting for this.  We used the last of the previous year's tomatoes in the spring and I cannot bring myself to use store bought spaghetti sauce.  It's a lot of work, but so worth it.  There is something about home grown, home canned sauce that can't be beat.

Our scarecrow has done a good job watching over the garden.  His job is not done just yet!



  1. Yum! My garden didn't do so hot this year, but I was able to pick up some awesome field tomatoes from our farmers market at a reasonable price.. and have some sauce making in our weekend plans.

  2. So great!! Our tomatoes were a big ol' dud this year. Need to rethink things for next year or branch out into other less disappointing plants, haha
