By noon yesterday I felt as though I'd been up to my eyeballs in tomatoes for many more hours than I actually was. From start to finish, I worked on those luscious, red, fruits for about 5 hours and the end result was 14 canned pints of delicious.
Those are gonna taste mighty fine in soups and chili during the cold winter months.
I also canned 7 pints and 4 quarts of pickled okra last week. Most of those are for one of the college kids that works down on the farm, he grows it, picks it, and sends it to me to pickle for him.
I'm not doing anything today that I don't have to.
Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
