Great weather, lots of rain, hot days of summer, more rain, tomato plants....turns into a BUNCH of tomatos! My son Joe and I are working on freezing/canning.
First u pick them, then you put some in a pot of HOT water for a few minutes to loosen the skin off the tomato, then you take them out, peel the skin(comes off real easy when you do the hot water trick), core them, then fill a quart bag full of them, then squish them, then seal and let cool. Next comes the freezer! Makes for awesome sauce for spaghetti, chili, etc. No store bought tomato sauce this winter!
p.s. this is just the first picking. That is a bottle of Bud in the middle of the tomatos....I only planted 8 Celibrity tomato plants......wait 'til next week!
