I love the fact that you're bringing me a bottle of it when you come to Vernal next! Thank you in advance.

Holy cow! That is a lot of produce. I love veggies fresh from the garden. If only I knew how to can so I could enjoy them all year.

That garden of yours is amazing! I really miss those dried peaches, those are delicious!

Rachel said...

That is amazing! My parents never have any luck with their tomato plants. You obviously did very well.

Emily that is amazing!! Way to go. We are truly kindred spirits. I'm glad you take pics too!

Amanda said...

You are crazy! I'm so impressed by all that you can get done in a day. I really should learn how to be more productive like you are, and maybe make my mom teach me how to can...

Fantastic. In a small way, I feel like I helped... You know having my little buddy over for breakfast & some play. Ok, I didn't help but I had more fun!!

I was going to ask you what you did with all those tomatoes you grow. I guess this answers it. Now what do you do with all the tomatoes you bottle?

Audrey: Yes, I did the stewed tomatoes with Richard & Gloria.
Amanda: I will teach you how to can.
Angie: you helped in a BIG way by taking my kids.
Mindy: So far I've canned stewed tomatoes and vegetable medley soup. Next up is marinara sauce. I use stewed tomatoes for things like stuffed peppers, lasagna, and chilli.
