No more tomatoes!

My friend Jeri has a camera and knows how to use it as shown here:
I on the other hand have a camera. So my pictures of my homemakey stuff (Jeri's words, not mine) don't looks as pretty as hers. I have been busy though. Yesterday I spent the whole day, yes the whole day, peeling tomatoes! It was awful and my nails are still a little orange to prove it. I did make 14 qts of spaghetti sauce and 7 pints and 2 quarts of salsa. I can't actually taste these things yet because I'm tomato overloaded! Hopefully they turned out ok. Canning can be such a pain, but seeing your bottles all sitting on the counter looking pretty is very rewarding and hearing the pop of the lids and knowing that it all actually worked it great. I will not EVER do spaghetti sauce by myself though. I can't wait until Eli is old enough for slave labor!

Aw, thanks Bec!

I wanted to do tomatoes so bad but our garden got hit by a little frost that killed off all of our tomatoes. Next year maybe I'll plant more... but I'm scared that we'll have a billion more tomatoes than we know what to do with.

I'll come make spaghetti sauce with you next year. It will be fun.
