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!
